Leslie Elliott Interviews Dr. Carole Sherwood: CSJ vs CBT

It was a pleasure to speak with Dr. Carole Sherwood. Among other things, we discussed the Critical Social Justice aversion to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and the push to “decolonize” education. Dr Carole Sherwood is a clinical psychologist. She worked for the National Health Service in the UK, specialising in sexual health, chronic pain, cancer, palliative care, and trauma. Dr Sherwood has grown increasingly concerned about the incursion of Critical Social Justice into clinical psychology. In 2022 she co-authored an independent report, The Politicisation of Clinical Psychology Training Courses in the UK, with Dr Kirsty Miller. She also contributed to the book Cynical Therapies: Perspectives on the Anti-therapeutic Nature of Critical Social Justice, edited by Dr Val Thomas. Dr Sherwood is on the steering committee of Critical Therapy Antidote, an organisation that is committed to preserving the healing ethos of therapy. She is also on the Advisory Council of Don’t Divide Us, the UK’s common-sense voice on race. https://save-mental-health.com/traini… https://criticaltherapyantidote.org/ https://criticaltherapyantidote.org/n… https://dontdivideus.com/
