Check out the website for APA's community psychology division at http://www.apa.org/about/division/div27.html for general information about community psychology.

you can find a history of Division 27, Community Psychology, in Vol. III of Donald Dewsbury (Ed.), Unification through division: History of the divisions of the American Psychological Association (American Psychological Association).

For psychology in other countries, see previous threads on this page related to international psychology--there have been several.
