Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Recently, there has been a shift away from single-focus, researcher-driven approaches to prevention, to more community-based, multi-component approaches involving many partners (Schorr, 1997). In the new approach, the implementation of the intervention is rooted in community development (Powell & Nelson, 1997), and the evaluation of the intervention uses participatory action research (Nelson, Ochocka, Griffin, & Lord, 1998). Values and partnerships are central to this new approach.
