The Single Practitioner and Community Engagement: Bridging the Gap between Practice and Social Action
Dale, Grady, Jr.
American Psychologist, v63 n8 p791-797 Nov 2008
Urban communities, with their myriad systemic problems of poverty, social dysfunction, and diminishing public and private resources compounded by endemic health and economic disparities, provide the single psychologist practitioner with a rewarding opportunity to become involved in urban community activities and to make a positive impact. Finding common ground for discourse and action with community members can benefit both the community and the psychologist by helping them to identify, understand, and engage the community in developing solutions for community-based problems faced by residents on a daily basis.
