Practice Council

This is the Group Space for the Practice Council The Practice Council's purpose is to promote the role of practice in all aspects of SCRA and Community Psychology. Our primary goal is to produce concrete benefits for communities and community groups - we are directly connected to the A in SCRA. Visit our practice wiki to access our many resources for practice.  If our goals speak to you, please contribute to our Council through the monthly phone calls or digitally through these pages.

SCRA Community Mini-Grants

During the Third Round of grants, 2012-2013, we gave a total of 10 awards of up to $1,200 each. Instead of being distributed on a rolling basis, we accepted applications during two distinct time periods, with start dates of: January 1 and July 1.  The total grant funding was divided between the two periods.  In the spirit of making these funds time-sensitive to community needs, our goal was to fund community projects which are set to begin within two months of application date.

Practitioner Vignettes

Community Practice Vignettes

What can you do with a community psychology degree? What type of work are community psychologists around the world doing?

The answers to these questions can be found in our collection of Practitioner Vignettes.  These profiles attempt to showcase community practice in its various forms.  We've asked practitioners to give us a glimpse at their worksites, their daily schedules, the skills they use, and the path that got them to their current careers.  Hopefully these profiles can help aspiring community psychologists better understand the world of community psychology practice.  

Check back often, as we are constantly updating our collection of vignettes:
