Book Description:

This is the first textbook in community psychology to cover this fairly new discipline as it expands across the world.  As the Coordinator of the Community Psychology and Social Change M.A. program at Penn State Harrisburg, this book is important in many ways.  It shows the breadth and depth of the field.  It emphasizes how different strands of the field are united by the shared values of liberation and well-being for all.  It was a great honor to be able to co-author the chapter focused on community psychology in the U.S.  In short,  this book illustrates how community psychology has effectively become a science for social change across the globe.
