Community Psychology, Evaluation, and Social Critique
Miller, Robin Lin
American Journal of Evaluation, v36 n1 p89-99 Mar 2015
Community psychology blends psychological science, a community-level perspective on social issues, and a social justice orientation. Despite important difference between community psychology and program evaluation, program evaluation is a key component of many community psychologists' practice and holds a central place in my own. In this essay, I reflect on the contributions of my community psychology training to my evaluation practice, which has centered on social justice issues primarily of HIV prevention and care and gay, bisexual, lesbian, and transgender concerns in communities of color. I also highlight tension between being a community psychologist as an advocate of justice and as an evaluator.
