Community psychology is a subfield of psychology that focuses on understanding and improving the well-being of individuals and communities. It is concerned with the interconnected factors that influence health and well-being, including the social and physical environments, policies and systems, and individual and community assets and strengths.

Community psychologists use a strengths-based and holistic approach, considering the full range of social, economic, political, and cultural factors that impact individuals and communities. They work in collaboration with communities, organizations, and policy-makers to develop and implement programs and interventions that promote well-being and address the root causes of problems.

Some of the key areas of focus for community psychologists include health promotion, social justice and human rights, community development, and the promotion of community-based participatory research. They may also work on issues related to environmental sustainability, community resilience, and disaster preparedness and response.

Community psychology is a cross-disciplinary field that draws on a range of knowledge and skills from psychology, sociology, public health, and other related fields. It plays an important role in promoting positive social change and improving the quality of life for individuals and communities.
