Community-based participatory research

Professional Blueprint

Overview: Submit a complete, polished community psychology (CP) professional blueprint that incorporates revised content from the project milestones along with additional content on Systems Thinking, your role in the system, and a topic of your choice. The blueprint should address all of the topics and questions outlined below, and it must be a structured paper that includes a number of specific elements that link your expanding knowledge of CP with your professional goals and interests.

Note: You should use the resources that you collect in your annotated bibliography to inform your project, and any additional resources relevant to the blueprint. Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

1. Systems View

Write a two-page response to the following questions:

a. As a systems thinker, how do various agencies and their goals interact in the community? Pick two agencies and demonstrate how their goals, missions, and outcomes support the community.


b. Does your community have any interagency associations that coordinate planning and social change efforts? For example, does the community have a human service association such as United Way? (These efforts may deal with prevention, crisis response, building community resilience, and so on.)


2. Your Role in the System

Write a two-page response to the following questions:

a. In your current role, what system are you part of?


b. What specific ideas and issues drive that system? (Example: the benefits of elder day-care services or of youth diversion courts.)


c. As part of the system, how do these issues impact you?

Note: If you are not currently working in this field, answer based on your intended position in the future.

3. Topic of Interest

Write a two-page response to a question of your choice that highlights your professional and career interests—a particular idea, concept, or theory that you would like to study further.
