En 50 años más espero que la psicología comunitaria sea una disciplina consolidada en el ámbito de la salud y la educación. Me la imagino ocupando el primer lugar de los programas formativos de psicólogos y apareciendo como una materia imprescindible que dote de herramientas prácticas a los nuevos colegas.

Translation of Rodrigo Rojas's comment:

"In 50 years I hope that Community Psychology is a consolidated discipline in health and education. I imagine it as a first choice among the various psychology's programs, and as a must take course that provides practice tools for our new colleagues".

Rodrigo makes an interesting point about the interdisciplinary nature of Community Psychology. Integrating multiple tools would do a lot to propel Community Psychology forward in the next 50 years. Should we think to create programs with that in mind? What say you?

With an strong basis on sense of community (social cohesion) and empowerment (active participation), community psychology is contributing #In2065 to understanding more diverse and complex community dynamics... Community change is also inspired by such contributions...

Community psychology challenges us to create spaces where those who have structurally been denied a voice in democracy can begin to build power for civic engagement. This mandate is of utmost importance because if there is a group that is systematically excluded from civil society, then this structural exclusion tends to breed injustice. Historically, community psychologists have engaged specific populations that fit this description, including those labeled as seriously mentally ill (e.g., Fairweather et al. 1969 ). More recently, researchers have also worked with those who are or have been incarcerated (Fine et al. 2003 ), recent immigrants (Solis 2003 ; Su rez-Orozco), those who are undocumented (Dominguez et al. 2009 ), and youth (Watts and Flanagan 2007 ). Children also fit this description.
