Asset Assessments and Community Social Work Practice



Oxford University Press

The field of community asset assessments is expanding rapidly, and, in the process, is introducing new or modified versions of commonly used methods. The more “common” methods, incidentally, are also generally prevalent in needs assessments and will not be new to the well-initiated community social worker. There are a series of qualitative and quantitative methods that lend themselves to asset assessments. Interestingly, many of these methods have been used for needs assessments, but with the necessary modifications, can also be used in community asset-based assessments: (1) Qualitative Methods (such as key informants, focus groups, community forums, the Delphi Technique, oral history, review of historical archival data, participant observations, photovoice, or expert panel); (2) Quantitative Methods [such as the use of select social indicators and existing organizational computer-generated data and Geographic Information System (GIS)].

Keywords:   methods, community participation, measurement of assets, Delphi Technique, Geographic Information System
