H Organizing community mental health in metropolitan areas. Published in final edited form as: Published online Nov Kaufman, Ph. The Center has flourished as a community psychology setting for practice, research, and training for 39 of the 50 years since Swampscott.

Its creation and existence over this period offers an opportunity for reflection on the types of settings needed to sustain the field into the future. The 50th anniversary of the Swampscott Conference offers an opportunity to reflect on a community psychology setting that has existed for 39 of those 50 years: The Consultation Center at Yale. The Center was formed in the crucible of the s that resulted in the Community Mental Health Act and the Swampscott Conference, and has flourished as a community psychology setting for practice, research, and training ever since.

Its creation as a setting and sustained existence over this period provides those of us at the Center a unique opportunity for reflecting on the future of the field, and the types of settings needed to sustain it.

Since its inception in , the Center has been a collaborative endeavor of three entities — the Department of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine; the Connecticut Mental Health Center, a state-funded community mental health center; and The Consultation Center, Inc.

The mission of the Center is to promote health and wellness, prevent mental health and substance abuse problems, and advance equity and social justice www. Signed into law in by President John F. Ten years later those services were organized into a separate site, The Consultation Center, which focused exclusively on community-based services, research, and professional training Tebes et al.

One goal of the conference was to develop strategies for training psychologists involved in community-oriented mental health programs. As noted in the conference proceedings, psychologists mostly clinical but some social psychologists were already involved in program development as well as consultation to community organizations to promote mental health and to create healthy environments, even though most had not been trained in these new professional roles Anderson et al.

State departments of mental health and federal agencies, such as the National Institute of Mental Health, were eager to enhance educational opportunities for clinical psychologists in community mental health settings to do community-oriented work, which provided an impetus to define a new area of practice, community psychology Anderson et al.

Since The Consultation Center began as part of a multidisciplinary clinical site that included psychologists, social workers, psychiatric residents, nurses, and paraprofessionals and then moved to a new location separate from the clinical service in , the Center always adopted an interdisciplinary, team-based approach to carry out its mission, which early on also included a life-span developmental focus.

Thus, Center faculty and staff provided a range of consultation, education, and prevention services, including: clinical and organizational consultation to Head Start Centers, youth-serving organizations, schools, and community social service organizations; training to professionals and psycho-educational workshops to community members on a range of prevention and health promotion topics; and program and systems development consultation to city and state leaders to improve practice and policies.

Since community psychology faculty served in leadership positions at the Center, they also developed related research programs that integrated practice and research. However, because the Center was a part of a community mental health site and a medical school, there were different institutional incentives to sustain it as a practice, research, and training site. Typically, this is done through a combination of practice, research, and training, although some sites may emphasize one or more of these areas.

Medical school settings that thrive usually embrace an entrepreneurial spirit, an interdisciplinary approach, and a commitment to collaborations within and outside the setting. We view this extension into understanding inter-individual levels of influences, and their interaction with intra-individual and contextual influences, on healthy development from a community psychology perspective.

Translational research may also include examination of implementation in community settings Damschroder, et al, ; Martino, et al, , another focus of community psychology Spoth et al. Community psychologists have much to offer team science, particularly if one considers the overlap between interdisciplinary team science and community-based participatory research Tebes et al.

As community psychologists in a medical school, not only have we learned much about social and community change processes from collaborations with colleagues in kindred disciplines, such as public health, nursing, social work, and psychiatry, but also from those less common to community psychology, such as primary care, pharmacology, health economics, and biomedical ethics.

These collaborations have expanded our thinking about what can be achieved in promoting health and wellness as well as equity and social justice, which are central to research, practice, and training in community psychology.

Since its inception, the Center has provided mentorship and training to students in psychology, social work, nursing, and public health, and at any given time, about one quarter of the or so people working at the Center are students of some kind, or are planning to become students in the near future.

These are supplemented by site-based, didactic training in community psychology. With the support of a NIDA T32 postdoctoral research training grant, the Center also trains postdoctoral fellows in prevention research who come from various fields in psychology, as well as from public health, human development, and social work.

By design, fellows work with two mentors, at the Center or elsewhere in the medical school, so that they obtain multiple perspectives to guide their career development. As a result, they often are trained to consider complex health and social problems at multiple levels e. For pre-doctoral interns, this bridging of academia with applied experience helps them consolidate their graduate training, develop areas of competence, and select new areas for further development.

For postdoctoral fellows who already are committed to some form of research career in community psychology or a related field, mentorship emphasizes articulating an independent program or research as they seek an external faculty or research position.Google Scholar Levine, M.
