This course serves as an introduction to community psychology, a discipline that blends elements of sociology, anthropology, social psychology, clinical psychology, developmental psychology, and urban planning (to name a few). Class topics include levels of analysis, ecologies, prevention and intervention, feminism, and community psychology, empowerment, self-help, sense of community, coalition building, and social justice and action.
Students in this course will be exposed to ways of conceptualizing and understanding their own and others' communities in ways that bring to bear social, political, cultural, and systemic issues. Of paramount importance are understanding individuals in context, issues of diversity, and how a multitude of forces and powers affect our individual and collection health, wellness, and illness.
