Overview

Community Psychology

What communities do you belong to? Belonging to a family, neighbourhood, religious organization, sports team, etc., provides us with valuable social relationships and human connection. Community psychology examines how various aspects of belonging to a community can impact our psychological, social, and physical well-being. In this course we will explore a number of fascinating topics, including the relationship between stress, social support, and sense of community; the impact of discrimination on individual and community well-being; the importance of diversity, empowerment, prevention, and health promotion; the history of self-help and community mental health; the role of community-based, qualitative research methods; as well as the significance of community development and organization – with the goal of understanding how to create a more socially responsible and healthy society for all.
