Abstract

The psy disciplines are those fields of knowledge associated with mind, mental life, and behaviour, most typically psychology, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, but extending more broadly to a wide range of applied areas. The knowledge and practice of the psy disciplines are a central focus of attention within critical psychology because of the power the disciplines exercise in constructing and constituting people in particular ways. Critical approaches interrogate what knowledge/powers are exercised via those disciplines, how that knowledge/power occurs, and on what grounds it is exercised.
