Students, Alumni and Faculty from the MA in Clinical Psychology’s Applied Community Psychology Specialization recently published three articles in a special issue of the Global Journal of Community Psychology Practice on Community Psychology Practice Competencies. The Global Journal of Community Psychology Practice is an international, peer review, open access journal.
The first article Challenges and Strategies in Promoting Empowering Academic Settings for Learning Community Psychology Practice Competencies written by Dr. Gregor Sarkisian and Dr. Sylvie Taylor focuses on challenges in promoting empowering academic settings for learning community psychology practice competencies. The second article, Learning Community Psychology Practice Competencies: Student Pathways through the Applied Community Psychology Specialization coauthored with students and alumni Huda Bayaa, Claire Cahen, Angela Doss, Rachel Fusco, Rebecca Gordon, Dr. Gregor V. Sarkisian, & Dr. Sylvie Taylor, focuses on student pathways through the Applied Community Psychology Specialization and into early careers – how alumni have applied the practice competencies in their work roles. The third article, The System: A Multilevel Social Service Simulation, written by Dr. Gregor Sarkisian, focuses on an experiential learning exercise developed by Dr. Sarkisian to support learning community psychology practice competencies (e.g., ecological perspectives), social power, and systems change.
