Lasker and Weiss make the point that “at a practical level, many of the problems that affect the health and well-being of people in communities . . . cannot be solved by any person, organization, or sector working alone” (2007). This unit’s readings include references to the kinds of processes that generate community engagement.
Discuss the processes for effective community engagement:
- What kinds of processes do you think are likely to be effective in communities you know? Explain your thinking.
- How might you apply these processes to the health issue your action plan is targeting?
- In relation to these processes, think ahead about the action plan you will be completing later in the course. Who should be involved, how will you involve participants, and how will you promote broad and active participation?
