THEory into ACTion Bulletin

Purpose

A major purpose of the Community Psychology Practice Council is to communicate community practice knowledge to the widest possible audience.  To help further that purpose, the Council began publishing a monthly series of outreach bulletins in July, 2012.

These bulletins are brief  (about 500-750 word) summaries of innovative community practice work, whose findings could be adapted and used in real-world settings by community practitioners elsewhere.

Behind the Bulletins

A small group of Council members generates these bulletins on a rotating basis.  Each month, one member selects a topic, writes the article, circulates the draft for editing among the group, and sends the revised version to a distribution list that includes other community psychologists, APA staff, and community professionals in other disciplines.

The bulletins have been well received. One measure of success has been APA’s cross-posting of some of these bulletins on its own Psychology Benefits Society blog.   Current plans for the future are to increase the number of writers and to expand the bulletin distribution list.  Suggestions, questions, and of course contributions from readers are welcomed.
