Asset Assessments and Community Social Work Practice



Oxford University Press

The culmination of all the work that has gone into a community asset assessment is often represented in a form of document with information pertaining to methodology, findings, recommendations, and limitations. Thus, the reporting of findings from an asset assessment is sufficiently important to warrant its own chapter. This chapter presents various innovative ways of disseminating results to a community beyond the conventional issuing of a report on findings and recommendations. There is certainly a place for official reports, and using innovative approaches to dissemination does not preclude the issuing of a report, since most funders prefer this method. However, reports invariably are written for a particular audience in mind, and rarely is this audience the community that will ultimately benefit from the findings. Consequently, a multifaceted approach toward dissemination of findings or translation will go a long way toward increasing community participation and achieving change.
