About this item

While this study pays special attention to Scotland, information comes from research around the UK. The study looks at asset-based approaches from the perspectives of public health, community development, and social services, drawing on the authors’ own interviews and surveys of practitioners, as well as analysis of existing case studies. The rationale and empirical evidence for asset-based approaches are reviewed, and the place of asset-based approaches in political and economic contexts is explored. Examples are given of asset-based approaches at the individual, group, community, and population levels. Types of evidence and measurements used in asset-based approaches are explained, and related workforce issues are also discussed. The book’s audience includes policy makers, practitioners, and researchers in public services. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
