The Latin American Community Psychology Training Network is an academic space to promote cooperation between institutions in order to jointly carry out academic activities focused on the training of Community Psychology in Latin America.

On the occasion of the Seventh International Conference on Community Psychology held in Santiago de Chile (October, 2018), said Network decided to create the “Esther Wiesenfeld” Prize to be awarded to students who carry out work in the field of Community Psychology. It seeks to recognize and honor Dr. Wiesenfeld’s career and her generosity towards her peers and students, which has resulted in her becoming a reference for many members of the academic community today. She has also contributed to the creation and development of the Network itself from her know-how in terms of collaborative work.

At the same time, this award aims to give visibility to experiences and productions that contribute daily to the development of Community Psychology in Latin America and the Caribbean by addressing problems that are a product of the profound inequality and social injustice experienced by the region, without them having the deserved recognition and dissemination.

The prize will be delivered at each of the International Conferences on Community Psychology, given that it is an event that brings together the international academic community, thus enabling public recognition of its award, of the awarded productions and people. For this first edition it will be at the 10th Conference to be held in Montevideo (Uruguay), between September 10 and 13, 2024.



The “Esther Wiesenfeld” Prize will be awarded in two categories: undergraduate students and postgraduate students (masters and doctorates) who develop work (action, research, and/or theoretical production) that contributes to the field of Community Psychology and that stand out for the importance and socio-political relevance of the problems they address and for a critical and ethical positioning in relation to them, for their theoretical-conceptual elaboration, and/or for their methodological innovation.
