PCSR’s aim and purpose
PCSR’s aim is to locate counselling and psychotherapy in a social, political, ecological, and economic context. PCSR’s activities meet its stated aim through:
- Recognising the impact of the political dimension on the client-therapist relationship;
- Developing ideas about how social, economic, political, ecological and cultural issues can be integrated into theory and practice;
- Addressing and challenging racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, disablism, and other discrimination at all levels within and beyond our profession.
- Generating action, launching campaigns, and seeking to influence political processes.
In these pages you will find further information on our Ethos, our Activities, how PCSR is run and how to contact us. We offer two regular journals and other publications members. There is also a forum where members discuss issues that concern us. If you are not a member you will not be able to read discussions apart from announcements and events, but members have full access. We welcome new members and you can find membership details and an application form here as well. We also welcome your involvement in our work and activities and you can find out how to get involved here.
