Radical Psychology is a journal of the Radical Psychology Network and fully endorses its goals:

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.

No attempt has been made to define the word "radical".  We believe that our diversity is our strength; no single approach to psychology has a monopoly on the truth nor exclusive claim to the term "radical".

Radical Psychology provides a forum for scholars interested in social justice and the betterment of human welfare but dissatisfied with the manner in which mainstream psychology has addressed these issues.  Subjects addressed by the journal include, but are not limited to: anti-psychiatry, qualitative methods, political psychology, feminism, anti-racism, multiculturalism, radical clinical theory, critical theory, critiques of mainstream psychology, and history of psychology.
