Community Psychology Practitioner Profiles Project

The Profiles Project: What do Community Psychologist Practitioners Do?

Have you ever been in the situation where you say, "I'm a Community Psychology" and people reply, "What is that?"

This seems to be a common occurrence for individuals within the field whether he/she is working in school, university, organization or community settings.The purpose of this project is to increase the visibility of community psychology work and the community psychology practitioners doing the work.

History of Development

In 2010, the Profiles Project, previously known as "The Vignettes Project", emerged out of the Community Psychology Practice Council. The goal of this project is to promote community psychology work outside of academia by gathering illustrative stories describing what community practitioners do. These profiles were intended to be published in multiple formats including books, journals, websites and other educational materials pertaining to community psychology practice. In 2011, the profiles were used, with permission, for the "Community Psychology Practitioner Spotlight" featured on the Community Psychology Practice Blog in an effort to share community psychology work with an extended audience.
