What is Community Psychology – Laura Kohn-Wood and Courte Voorhees




RadioActive is an hour long talk show hosted by Natalie Kivell, a Ph.D. candidate in Community Well-Being at the University of Miami. Each week Natalie interviews academics and/or activists from around the world who dive into critical discussions from a Community Psychology lens aimed specifically at addressing structural inequality and the root causes of our complex social problems. The show aims to provoke listeners to think differently about social change and social justice to help shift how we think, act and react to social change efforts in our research and practice.

RadioActive airs every Sunday at 6pm on wvum.org out of the University of Miami student radio station.

Laura Kohn-Wood and Courte Voorhees discuss the timeless question: “What is Community Psychology”. During this episode, Laura and Courte describe principles, theories, values and methodologies that make up the field of Community Psychology. They also share their own journeys into the field, and give information on how people can become more involved and/or continue to learn about our action oriented field.
