Psychologists and the Object of Social Change: Transforming Social Policy
Throughout this book, we have emphasized the value of social justice for the practice of critical psychology in diverse settings. But often the social justice work that we are espousing is practised at the micro and meso levels. Moreover, what disadvantaged people and critical psychologists are able to achieve within micro and meso level settings is constrained by macro-level social structures, processes, and policies. For critical psychologists working in solidarity with disadvantaged people to achieve more fully an agenda of social justice, there must be a focus on macro-level change (Prilleltensky and Nelson, 1997).
