What is critical and community psychology?
Critical and community psychology aims to explain distress in terms of social, political and societal contexts. It adopts a systems level approach and questions more traditional approaches, with a focus on the individual within the community.

Delegates will hear multiple perspectives on how and why you may wish to become a critical or questioning psychologist in the NHS. Attendees will gain of an understanding of and insight into:

  • What it means to be ill or sane within the real world
  • What we need to consider about anti-psychotic medication
  • How to critique and engage with different perspectives
  • How to work as a questioning psychologist within MDT settings
  • The challenges and possibilities of a mental health service that considers the impact of social disadvantage and trauma as focal determinants of personal struggles

Who is the event for?
The day is suited for individuals in pre-training roles (AP, RA, support worker etc.) and those currently in training. Individuals recently qualified may also find the day stimulating, along with established and practising psychologists.

No prior knowledge or awareness of critical and community psychology is required to benefit from this event as it is aimed at those on the path to training and qualifying.

What will the day include?
Talks and interactive workshops delivered by a range of well renowned speakers, from a variety of specialisms. Confirmed speakers include Dr Lucy Johnstone, Jacqui Dillon and Dr Rufus May. There will be poster presentations during lunch and presentations from pre-qualified members.
