Show synopsis Designed for students who want to take the theoretical discussion of community forward and become effective agents of change, "Promoting Community Change, International Edition" addresses the real world issues facing professionals in social work, human services, and community health. By emphasizing the role a strengthened community can play in preventing and solving the problems that individuals and families commonly experience, the author gives students the tools they need to improve the lives of not just individual clients, but of entire communities. Students will learn to identify the issues related to change so that they can bring clients, families, and other community members together in order to build a healthier community for themselves, their families, and their neighbors. Rather than a passive service' model, the author presents a development model that empowers communities to transform their own conditions.
