Roots and the Varied Soils for Ecological Inquiry
This chapter's recollections focus on the roots, supportive places, and people that contributed to multifaceted discoveries. The author hopes that these discoveries will express some plausible interconnections of times and settings that in retrospect illuminate how he may have become an ecological thinker and contributor to the field of community psychology. The chapter presents the discoveries under seven headings, which illustrate topics for further discussion. These seven topics, in sequence, are social class, the power of place, the diversity of roles, the sources of social support, coping with noxious events, the benefit of ideas from other places, and the role of coincidence. They also include the reviews of others who have observed in a professional or personal context. Their recollections were either congruent with its memory or they reported that it seemed to be an accurate depiction of what took place. Each of these seven topics is presented as a point of orientation.
