This ground-breaking textbook is the third edition of a trusted and highly respected introduction to community psychology: its core values, its research methods and interventions, and its application to the some of the most pressing issues, crises and injustices affecting today's society. The extended team of editors, now featuring a new generation of community psychologists, has significantly revised and updated the text in order to reflect the latest research and developments in community psychology. They have focused on three contemporary social issues in order to illustrate key concepts throughout the book: climate change, affordable housing and homelessness, and immigration. 

Setting out the principles of community psychology, the authors consider how its roots have helped to shape the goals of liberation and well-being. Following this, they offer a close look at the conceptual, interventional, and research tools of community psychology, exploring how they can be applied in different contexts, the obstacles faced and the most practical and effective ways that community psychologists can work to help achieve social justice.

Featuring a wide range of critical perspectives from international scholars and practitioners, many international examples, exercises and additional online resources, this textbook encourages students to consider theories and methodologies in light of how they might be applied to different cultures and settings.The third edition of Community Psychology: In Pursuit of Liberation and Well-Being is a book which develops students' ability to think critically about the role of psychology in society, and about how community psychology can aid in the liberation of oppressed groups and promote social justice and flourishing both for people and for our planet.
