PSYC 330/3003 - Community Psychology (3 cr.)



Prerequisites
   or permission of instructor.

Description
This course will introduce students to theory and practice in community psychology. The practice of community psychology is directed towards the design and evaluation of strategies to prevent social pathologies such as crime, widespread drug abuse, and domestic violence, and promote community empowerment and healthy group coping strategies. While these strategies are, of course, aimed at promoting mental health in the individual, the idea is to target the social system of which he/she is a part and thus create a psychologically healthy setting for many individuals.

When Offered
Offered in fall.
