Have you ever wondered how people can become more active contributors in their communities? Or do you ever think about how community issues can impact the health and wellness of individuals?
These are both major topics of interest within the field of community psychology. We are therapists (maybe others groups after a while) that want to share our knowledge with you. We might expand what this site will be used for, after a while. Ideas are much appreciated!
We also try to:
- Finding ways to help disadvantaged or disenfranchised individuals feel more connected with each others
- Understanding social issues among minority groups
- Building relationships between individuals and community
- Spreading information and skills about psychological well being in personal and professional spheres of life
About psychology and psychologists:
While psychological knowledge is often applied to the assessment and treatment of mental health problems, it is also directed towards understanding and solving problems in many different spheres of human activity. The majority of psychologists are involved in some kind of therapeutic role, practicing in clinical, counseling, or school settings. Many do scientific research on a wide range of topics related to mental processes and behavior, and typically work in university psychology departments or teach in other academic settings (e.g., medical schools, hospitals). Some are employed in industrial and organizational settings, or in other areas such as human development and aging, sports,health, and the media, as well as in forensic investigation and other aspects of law.
