The Community Psychology Evaluation Nexus
Sheldon, Jeffrey A.; Wolfe, Susan M.
American Journal of Evaluation, v36 n1 p86-89 Mar 2015
In 2012, the American Evaluation Association (AEA) added community psychology (CP) to its roster of topical interests groups (TIG). One of the highlights of the CP TIG program at the 2012 AEA Conference and the genesis of this "American Journal of Evaluation" Forum was a panel of accomplished community psychologists and evaluation practitioners that included James Cook, Rebecca Campbell, Robin Lin Miller, and Michael Morris with David Fetterman as discussant. This forum brings together three of these panelists: James Cook, Robin Lin Miller, and Michael Morris who have each offered to the evaluation community an essay on the community psychology-evaluation nexus. In this introduction, we offer our highlights and takeaways from these three essays, which provide their unique perspectives on evaluation through the lens of CP and from their practical experiences.
