Synopsis

What transformation would happen if we could combine the best of liberal politics with psychology?





Awakening our Faith in the Future investigates the avenues for creating a new branch of psychology, a transformative political psychology. In the past, political psychology has focused directly on analysis and knowledge acquisition, rather than on interventions that transform self and culture. A transformative political psychology combines the best of traditional social science with the transformative intent of clinical psychology in order to create a new political culture.





Peter T. Dunlap suggests that while liberals focus intently outside of themselves on changing the world, those with psychological interests focus much more internally on changing themselves. In this book, he argues that by combining political liberalism and psychology, and encouraging psychologists to develop cultural learning practices based on ideas of self-knowledge, there is opportunity to transform our political culture.





Divided into five parts, this book explores:









stories of political destiny

questions of development

opportunities for political development

a speculative theory of cultural evolution

practices of a political psychologist.





This scholarly text uses personal experiences and the stories of progressive political leaders as pathways for addressing political problems, making it ideal reading for professionals and students in the fields of both politics and psychology as well as for activists interested in the future of liberalism.

Peter T. Dunlap is a political and clinical psychologist working in private and political practice. Peter works with political change groups, using educational, healing, and community engagement learning practices. His research includes an investigation into the political development of progressive political leaders titled Destiny as Capacity: The Transformation of Political Identity in Human Development.
