Summary

Community psychology examines social problems and promotes the well-being of people in their communities.

While the field draws heavily from psychology, it also draws from theory and practice in sociology, community development, ecology, public health, anthropology, cultural and performance studies, public policy, social work, and social justice movements.

Through community research and action, community psychologists produce knowledge that can inform social policies, social service work, helping practices, and community change.
