MORI SANCHEZ, Maria del Pilar. Social responsibility: A view from community psychology. Liberabit [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.2, pp. 163-170. ISSN 1729-4827.

Social responsibility has a lot of interpretations as a result of the different views that influence its action; the actions associated with this practice are usually related to companies, forgting that this approach turns out to be a strategic issue for rethinking social development interventions and well-being of communities. This new vision must be articulated with criteria, methodologies and practices that enable companies, civil society and state, working in a co- participatory way enhancing the development of peoples and country. This article wants to show the importance and need for social responsibility actions under the approach of community psychology methodological intervention. Four elements, which resemble agreement: between both practices, have been described emphasizing the community as subject and object of intervention, the ethical reasons of work, the actions effects on social transformation and the role of socially responsible professionals.

Keywords : Community; Ethics; Community Psychology; Social responsibility; Social transformation.
