Conference Theme: Health, Health Care and Social Justice
(Conference Website and First Announcement)
Encourage, enable and disseminate research and scholarship in critical health psychology and provide opportunities for debate and discussion in this field.
Provide a forum for scrutinising, challenging and questioning what is said and done in the purported pursuit of promoting and improving "health" by health psychologists and others.
Operate as a community of scholars (in the widest definition of that term and absolutely not restricted to people with formal affiliations to a university or other academic body), offering each other mutual support in the pursuit of critical approaches to health.
In particular, nurture and help career-young and emerging scholars in the field, and engage with and learn from communities and groups conventionally excluded or under-represented.
