Summary

Community Psychology was the first undergraduate text available that gave students an understanding of the content, approach, and philosophy that characterizes community psychology. It focuses on the importance of and strategies for producing social change and treating community problems with community psychology interventions. The text examines the role of community settings such as the mental health system, the educational system, the criminal justice system, and the social service system, and helps students understand that the principles of prevention and empowerment can be transferred from one community arena to another.
