Racism in Psychology examines the history of racism in psychological theory, practice, and institutions.
The book offers critical reviews by scholars and practising therapists from the US, Africa, Asia, Australia, and Europe on racism on the couch and in the wider socio-historical context. The authors present a mixed experience of the success of efforts to counter racism in theory, institutions, and organizations and differing views on the possibility of institutional change. Chapters discuss the experience of therapists, anti-Semitism, inter-sectionality, and how psychological praxis is part of a colonialist project.
The book will appeal to practising psychologists and counsellors, socially minded psychotherapists, social workers, sociologists and students of psychology, social studies, and race relations.
