Journal Article 1: Vinck, J., & Meganck, J. (2006). Do we need critical health psychology or rather critical health psychologists? Human Factors: Journal of Health Psychology, 11, 391–393.

Abstract: In her article Julie Hepworth discusses the definition of critical health psychology and its position within the field of health psychology. We understand that she is inclined to favor a position of critical health psychology that is separate from and in opposition to mainstream health psychology. In contrast to this, we are convinced that the important concerns of critical health psychology are better served by efforts to help mainstream health psychologists think and work more strongly from a critical perspective.
