Dear All,

Heather Gridley (Victoria University, Melbourne

asked me to circulate the following information. I can attest to the
vitality of community psychology at VU and ECU having visited both)

David

APS COLLEGE OF COMMUNITY PSYCHOLOGISTS

"The past 18 months of Community Psychology has been an amazing and
inspirational adventure. After four years of mainstream psychology, I felt
like I had been 'freed', and that finally I was in a space that allowed me
to explore and challenge much of what I had been taught so far.... However,
this course has given me more than just ideals and dreams for the future of
our communities. It has provided me with the practical skills and knowledge
to transfer my visions/dreams into a 'reality'." (Master's student)

Are you interested.....
*       in having a wide range of choice in employment settings?
*       in gaining advanced training in understanding the needs of people
and their communities?
*       in doing more than just mopping up after crises that could have been
prevented?
*       in learning more about qualitative research in real-world settings?
*       in being challenged to work with people in partnerships, rather than
as clients?
*       in psychology with a social conscience?

Community Psychology offers all this and more. Community psychologists,
while being trained as psychologists in every sense of the word, have
advanced training in understanding the needs of people in their communities.
They focus less on 'problems' and more on the strengths and competencies of
community members. The aim of community psychologists is to work in
partnership with people to achieve the goals and aspirations of their
community or social groups.

Community psychologists occupy a variety of roles in urban and rural
settings such as local government, education, community health and
non-government organisations.  Roles undertaken by community psychologists
include:
*       Program evaluation
*       Staff training
*       Counselling/advocacy
*       Group facilitation
*       Needs assessment
*       Community-based research
*       Project coordination
*       Community consultation and policy development
*       Health promotion and education

The APS College of Community Psychologists has accredited two fifth and
sixth year psychology programs designed to meet the niche market for
psychologists capable of working across individual, systems and community
levels. At Victoria University's Footscray campus or Edith Cowan
University's Joondalup campus, you can be part of a small, personalised
student group with staff who make a real effort to 'practise what they
preach'. These courses are particularly well suited to practitioners wishing
to build on their experience in the field by studying part-time.

Because Community Psychology is rarely taught at undergraduate level in
Australia, the College is keen to encourage new graduates as well as
experienced psychologists to find out more about this specialised area of
applied research and practice. Check out the College webpage on the new APS
website, come along to a college activity in your state (there are groups
operating in WA, Victoria, NSW and Queensland), or contact the psychology
departments at Vic Uni and ECU:
