 Application of the Framework to Practice: Intervention

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the intervention phase of the community capacity-enhancement framework. The phase is often categorized as the “bottom line” for most social agencies. It represents the ultimate benefits of much hard work and preparation, as evidenced during the initial three phases. The nature of intervention (goals, type of project, target group, complexity, extent of resource allocation, and time) greatly depends on local circumstances. Thus, practitioners must always be prepared to modify the intervention to take into account local issues and priorities.

Keywords: community capacity-enhancement; intervention phase; social work practice; nature of intervention
