We develop affirmative solutions by looking at problems differently.

Our vision is to create a better everyday life by using the tools of critical psychology.

At the heart of most research questions or policies is a desire for people to think and act differently. Underpinning this desire then, is a critique of the people such work seeks to affect.

CC-PSY takes a different approach.

Our research starts with questions of how a person makes sense of themselves. Then, we ask what can they say, think or do when they understand themselves this way? And what social, political, economic or material conditions enables this understanding? These questions allow us to understand the person in context, to value their sense making, and to identify new ways of reconceptualising problems to enhance lives.
