(p.107) 5 Analytical Framework for Undertaking Assessments
Asset Assessments and Community Social Work Practice



Oxford University Press

Any serious discussion of theory will undoubtedly uncover tension between those of us who wish to “do” and those of us who wish to “think” before doing. However, there is a clear and powerful relationship between theory, values, and practice. We believe that community asset assessments require the application of theory to practice. A framework, like principles, is an attempt to bridge this divide in a manner that facilitates these worlds coming together. The framework that is presented in this chapter is offered in the hopes that practitioners and academics can come together and do so with communities. The framework upon which community asset assessments are grounded in this book consists of five critical stages, with each stage having analytical (theoretical) and interactional (sociopolitical) dimensions and multiple steps.
