Games for community psychology. We introduced some of our games for participation and conscientisation at the Lisbon International Community Psychology Congress in 2008. Since then we have been piloting them and amending them. We are please to announce that they are now ready for you to work with and pilot yourselves. We have to charge to cover the costs of producing the games – until we know there is a demand we cannot produce lots of them and bring the costs down. So, if you would like to order one of the games: please use this order form which also gives details of the games.

Psychological Helping and Support Research Group at University College, London - page set up by Chris Barker and Nancy Pistrang -updated
"The UCL Psychological Helping and Support Research Group is a loose association of clinical/community psychologists, led by Dr Chris Barker and Dr Nancy Pistrang. It is part of the Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, in the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences of University College London. Our research focuses on all types of psychological helping and support. We mostly study those types that psychologists call social support, such as peer support, mutual support groups, internet support, befriending and mentoring. "
London School of Economics: MSc in Health, Community and Development, based at the LSE Social Psychology Institute. Catherine Campbell explains the programme:
programme will draw primarily on community psychology, critical
health psychology and social psychology. It aims to explore the role
of community participation and small-scale collective action in
public health and health promotion. It pays particular attention to
the psycho-social processes underlying the impact of collective
action on health, and the mechanisms through which community
development approaches may lead not only to improved health, but also
to transformatory social action. Our starting assumption is that
efforts to promote health and to reduce disease need to combine top
down and bottom up approaches. Whilst the primary focus of the course
will be the bottom up dimension, emphasis will be continually be laid
on the inter-dependence of these two levels of action and analysis.
