  • Edward E. Sampson
Part of the Critical Issues in Social Justice book series (CISJ)


Every critic faces a risk once she or he steps out of that role and into a more affirmative position. Yet, it seems at this point that I must accept that risk and introduce one of my own efforts designed to move psychology from its purist roots down an alternative path. In this chapter I introduce the concept frame of address, which I believe offers a small but helpful step in the right direction.
