This Chapter provides a brief historical account and introduction to community-based participatory research (CBPR), important principles and methodological considerations and issues, and an illustrative example of its application to Photovoice. Examples are provided from the “Good Neighborhoods”, a large community-based participatory research project underway in the City of Detroit. A central premise of this chapter is that the CBPR approach is congruent with the values and respective missions of the profession of social work (e.g., self-determination, democratic leadership, empowerment, etc.). The second theme of the chapter adds knowledge to the literature on university–community partnerships and the roles foundations can play in creating dynamic and systemic community change when a collaboration consisting of the three is formed. The third foci is Photovoice, an intervention that has been used worldwide to promote social change and to empower individuals who have historically not been given a voice in their community.

Keywords:   community-based participatory research, community organizing, photovoice, university and community collaboration, research methodology, social work, technical assistance, community empowerment
