Description


The study of an individual's contexts within the communities is termed as community psychology. It seeks to understand the human behavior in its cultural, historical, ecological and sociopolitical setting. Community psychology is an interdisciplinary field which is closely associated with community development, applied anthropology, public health, social work and community practice. The guiding principles of this discipline are social justice, empowerment, diversity, individual wellness, citizen participation, sense of community and empirical grounding. The key objective of community psychology is to design innovative and alternative interventions for the wellbeing of individuals. Collaboration of affected community members is of utmost importance in designing these interventions. This book unfolds the innovative aspects of community psychology which will be crucial for the holistic understanding of the subject matter. While understanding the long-term perspectives of the topics, the book makes an effort in highlighting their impact as a modern tool for the growth of the discipline. The topics covered in this book offer the readers new insights in the field of community psychology.
