Definition of Community Psychology



By integrating research with action, community psychology seeks to understand and enhance the quality of life of individuals, communities, and societies. Community psychology approaches are characterized by collaboration with stakeholders; interventions that focus on problem prevention and/or wellness promotion; ecological and systems levels of analysis and action; an outreach versus waiting orientation; and a commitment to the empowerment of underserved communities.
