Interrupting the Psy-Disciplines in Education, Hardback Book

Interrupting the Psy-Disciplines in Education Hardback

Edited by Eva Bendix Petersen, Zsuzsa Millei


This book offers critical explorations of how the psy-disciplines, Michel Foucault's collective term for psychiatry, psychology and psycho-analysis, play out in contemporary educational spaces.

With a strong focus on Foucault's theories, it critically investigates how the psy-disciplines continue to influence education, both regulating and shaping behaviour and morality.

The book provides insight into different educational contexts and concerns across a child's educational lifespan; early childhood education, inclusive education, special education, educational leadership, social media, university, and beyond to enable reflection and critique of the implications of psy-based knowledge and practice.

With chapters by a mixture of established and emerging international scholars in the field this is an interdisciplinary and authoritative study into the role of the psy-disciplines in the education system.

Providing vivid illustrations from throughout the educational lifespan the book serves as an invaluable tool for reflection and critique of the implications of psy-based practice, and will be of particular interest to academics and scholars in the field of education policy and psychology.
