Final Project: Community Intervention Program Proposal The final project involve


Final Project: Community
Intervention Program Proposal
The final
project involves designing a new community intervention program appropriate for
implementation within an organizational (e.g., school, clinic, NGO), system
(e.g., school district, statewide community mental health) or community
setting, for the purpose of addressing a key social issue of interest to you.
Potential issues include but are not restricted to marginalization, oppression,
discrimination, immigration, power, diversity, adaptation, or recovery.
Proposed programs can be situated within domestic or global contexts. This is a
program proposal for classwork only and you will not be directly contacting people who work in your community.
In developing
your program, be sure to attend to these key components:
The
issues or problems addressed
The
values reflected in the program approach and methods
The
conceptual foundation of the program
The
action and research tools (i.e., the “science of CP”)
Your program
will reflect:
·
values
and principles that are consistent with the transformative goals of community
psychology (i.e., address liberation and well-being);
·
reflect
a holistic model (i.e., reflect the synergistic person-ecology relationship and
address personal, relational, and collective well-being);
·
involves
stakeholders in a participatory process;
·
has
a clear conceptual (theory/paradigm) foundation;
·
and
makes use of research and action/intervention tools relevant to the project
purpose and consistent with the conceptual foundation.

guidelines for program analysis in Program

components.
