Chapters address a range of cultural and institutional arenas in which inequalities structured around categories of gender, race, class and sexuality are reproduced by psychological practices: from self-help books to special hospitals, from school exclusions to Gender Identity Clinics, from mothering magazines to mental health services.

Far from documenting just the damage, this book identifies the ways in which both professionals and users of sevices can act to counter psychologys abuses.

A practical intervention as well as theortical critique, the text offers examples of how change can be effected.
