This article analyses the ecological model as a dominant style of thinking inseparable from community intervention. Four essential characteristics are examined that define this thinking style: theoretical assumptions, the social construction of ecological thinking, collaborative style and psychosocial processes. From these points the role of the professional community worker and of social services is defined. A change is suggested in the action styles of professionals and institutions in order to increase the effectiveness of the work of the professional in the community.

Se analizan cuatro características esenciales que definen este estilo de pensamiento: Supuestos teóricos, la construcción social del pensamiento ecológico, el estilo de colaboración y los procesos psicosociales. A partir de estos puntos se define el rol del profesional de la comunidad y de los servicios sociales. Se sugiere un cambio en los estilos de actuación de profesionales e instituciones para hacer más efectiva la labor de los profesionales en su trabajo con la comunidad.

(1) I wrote this article, in response to a request by my friend Fernando Lluch, thinking of many of my friends working in Community Psychology in the Valencia Region, and with whom I am bound by my actions, my emotions and my thinking. I hope it will provide some support for them in their professional activity,with all its ups and downs and, curiously, with so much future.
