Community Psychology in Latin America, by using the concept of community, has generated participatory processes, in alliance with populations that seek the transformation of their living conditions. However, at present, the preponderance of values such as individualism and competition and increasing feelings of helplessness and distrust have resulted in progressive processes of disaffiliation and discrimination in community settings. In this article we reflect on how the transformations of contemporary relationships may influence the theory and practice of Community Psychology. Different strategies of analysis, visibilization and articulation are proposed to explore new tools that can be useful for emancipation and social equity projects.
