Dr Carole Sherwood

DDU Advisory Council

Dr Carole Sherwood is a clinical psychologist. She worked for the NHS specialising in sexual health, chronic pain, cancer, and trauma. Dr Sherwood has grown increasingly concerned about the incursion of Critical Social Justice into clinical psychology. She recently co-authored an independent report, The Politicisation of Clinical Psychology Training Courses in the UK, with Dr Kirsty Miller. She also contributed to the forthcoming book of essays, 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. It provides information, support, resources, supervision and training for psychotherapists who are against political activism in the therapeutic professions.
