Community Social Work Practice in an Urban Context

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the engagement phase of the community capacity-enhancement framework. Engagement refers to the sociopolitical process of developing relationships, eliciting commitments from community residents, and helping to ensure a harmonious working agreement between all significant parties. The process of engagement is critical to the ultimate success of any community capacity-enhancement effort. It takes on added significance when it involves population groups that have historically been ignored in setting agendas for change.

Keywords:   community capacity-enhancement, urban social work, social work practice, engagement phase, developing relationships, population groups
