 Framework for Capacity-Enhancement Practice

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents an overview of a framework for undertaking community capacity-enhancement interventions that are focused on murals, gardens, playgrounds, and sculptures that are built by the community. The framework consists of five phases that place equal emphasis on assessment, mapping, engagement, planning (includes implementation), and evaluation. The chapter discusses these different phases, how they interrelate, and grounds them within an ecological perspective toward practice.

Keywords: urban social work; urban environment; social work practice; assessment; mapping; engagement; planning; evaluation
