Henderson, Dawn X.
Teaching of Psychology, v44 n1 p58-62 Jan 2017
This article describes an undergraduate course in community psychology at an Historically Black University. The course integrated community engagement using a local neighborhood revitalization project as a platform for students to volunteer, prepare a historical analysis, and sense of community project. The course aims to fulfill a requirement under the Counseling, Community, and Health Foundation for psychology majors. The course used applied experiences within a neighborhood context to introduce students to theories and principles in community psychology. The article will discuss implications for undergraduate psychology education and the value of providing undergraduate community psychology courses to students.
