Community-Based Participatory Research is not only about involving the community; it is also about sharing power in the research process and allowing data based on community perspectives to be advanced into the policy arena. This is also an excellent example of applying research for positive social change through policy and advocacy.
For this Discussion, you will consider a case study involving a particular CBPR approach, and you will evaluate that approach’s potential for advancing policy and effecting positive social change.
With these thoughts in mind:
Review the case studies presented in Chapters 17, 19, and 20 of your Minkler and Wallerstein textbook. Select one of these case studies for your Discussion post.
Post a 2- to 3-paragraph analysis that includes the following:
A title to your post that names the case study you selected
A description of the case study you selected
A critique of how a CBPR approach in this arena can be helpful in pushing forward policy to create positive social change
