Promoting Community Change: Making It Happen in the Real World
Mark Homan's practical--and often humorous--text addresses the real world experiences facing those in the helping professions who focus on communities and organizations, and who want to learn how to actually affect community changes, not only discuss theory. PROMOTING COMMUNITY CHANGE, Third Edition doesn't simply describe issues related to change--it illustrates exactly how readers can personally become effective change agents. Many Social Workers know the techniques for dealing with individuals, but not as many know the techniques for improving communities in which those individuals live. Homan emphasizes the role a strengthened community can play in preventing problems (as well as producing solutions) to problems that individuals and families experience. Rather than a passive 'service' model, Homan presents a development model that empowers communities to transform their own conditions.
