On the spirit of community psychology: One personal story

On the spirit of community psychology: One personal story

James G. Kelly
University of California Davis


I believe there is some value in thinking about how to create emotional and intellectual resources to anchor, enhance and evolve our spirit when doing the work of community psychology.

When beginning our careers our families, social networks, mentors and senior colleagues often are sources of strength, support and feedback that are fundamental for us to keep our spirits. When we begin our newly created professional roles, to make our way, it is largely up to us to create our own support systems to sustain our spirit. Our family and social networks, colleagues and students may be at our side but it is ourselves who are challenged to experience personally the places in which we work.
