The Radical Psychology Network seeks like-minded psychologists and others to help create a society better able to meet human needs and bring about social justice. We want to change society's unacceptable status quo and bring about a better world.

And we want to change the status quo of psychology, too. We challenge psychology's traditional focus on minor reform, because enhancing human welfare demands fundamental social change instead. Moreover, psychology itself has too often oppressed people rather than liberated them.

RadPsyNet began as a membership organization in 1993 when two dozen people attended a conversation hour at an American Psychological Association convention. The topic, proposed by Dennis Fox and Isaac Prilleltensky, was simple: "Will Psychology Pay Attention to its Own Radical Critics?" Within a decade we had more than 500 members in over three dozen countries -- psychologists & nonpsychologists, academics & practitioners, faculty & students, therapists & consumers-survivors. Many call themselves "radicals," or "critical psychologists," or "progressives." We don't demand a single definition. But we do share the goals noted above.

Today we no longer have a formal membership process, and other projects have come and gone, including our online journal Radical Psychology, which published for ten years until its final issue in 2011 (all issues remain online). We're always open to new participants bringing new energy for new projects!

Our primary ongoing project today is our active E-mail Discussion List.
