Community Psychology: Thinking more, speaking more, doing more

Friday 11th March 2016 at The Studio, Birmingham

This conference was designed for pre-qualified members who are on a journey towards qualification during a time in which psychologists are beginning to have a greater presence and voice in the public domain, and were actively calling for social inequalities to be addressed as a priority, independent of their clinical roles.

What is critical and community psychology?
Critical and community psychology aims to explain distress in terms of social, political and societal contexts. It adopts a systems and macro level approach and questions more traditional approaches, with a focus on the individual within the community.
