The role of the APS College of Community Psychologists is focused on community psychology as a specialised area of practice within psychology.

Community psychologists have specific training and experience in understanding and supporting the needs of people in their communities. They focus less on ‘problems’ and more on the strengths and competencies of community members. They value human differences and are committed to core principles of flexibility, equity and respect for cultural diversity in meeting the needs of different communities.
