About the Practice Council


To expand the visibility, reach and impact of community psychology practice through opportunities for connection, support and professional development in the Society for Community Research and Action, academic community research and action graduate programs, other professional organizations and communities.

The Practice Council work to create a legitimate community psychology practice. We do that by helping to:

  • define what it means by practice,
  • designate the required skills and competencies,
  • demonstrate effectiveness of our work,
  • increase opportunities to be seen as legitimate and acknowledged,
  • increase the visibility of CP practice and
  • provide individual and institutional support.

  4. Support the career development of Practitioners and the market for Community Psychology Practitioners.
