Description - The Praeger Handbook of Social Justice and Psychology [3 volumes] by Chad V. Johnson

By introducing and explaining the intersection of two exciting and important areas of study, this landmark work unleashes their potential to address some of the most complex and globally relevant challenges of our time.

In this unique handbook, experts team up to explain the many innovative ways psychology is being applied to promote social justice. The wide-ranging, three-volume work addresses such significant issues as social justice ideology and critical psychology, war and trauma, poverty and classism, environmental justice, and well-being and suffering. It showcases approaches for integrating social justice into psychology, and it examines psychology's application of social justice within special populations, such as sexual minorities, youth, women, disabled persons, prisoners, older adults, people of color, and many others.

Chapter authors represent a diversity of perspectives, making the handbook an ideal resource for those who want information on a specific concern as well as for those looking for an introduction to the subject as a whole. Combining the practical with the theoretical, the work provides culturally sensitive tools that can effectively combat injustices locally and globally.

  • Provides multiple perspectives on a vast array of social justice issues around the world
  • Pays attention to inquiry, theory, and process to challenge injustices and inequities perpetuated by the status quo
  • Addresses social justice within multiple systems and contexts, such as families, schools, organizations, and communities
  • Examines the global and ideological influences on these systems
  • Offers theory and data as well as methods, tools, and strategies for confronting current inequities and working toward a more just world through psychological applications
