Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the mapping phase of the community capacity-enhancement framework. Mapping gives practitioners a great deal of flexibility in any given situation because they are able to gather a range of complex information that is not readily available from conventional sources, such as resource directories. Mapping can be used to enhance a community's capacities, which will prove to be an essential element of any form of intervention targeting a community. Practitioners, in turn, can tailor the kind of information they need to gather and to do so with a minimal amount of effort.

Keywords: community capacity-enhancement; urban social work; social work practice; mapping phase; resource directories
