Hello, we're Critical Publishing...

                 

and we're here to help people in education and social work become the best students and professionals they can be.

               

We (Di and Julia) founded Critical Publishing in 2012 after taking redundancy from our previous jobs at the same publishing company. We met up in the cafe in the British Library and hatched a plan.  We believed we could produce books and learning materials for education and social work students and professionals that were fresher and better than what was already around. Vist our Blog.

In the 2014 Independent Publishing Awards, Critical Publishing won the Best Newcomer category and their recent publication of Psychosocial and Relationship-Based Practice by Claudia Megele demonstrates clearly why they deserved the accolade. Read the review.
