Working with Communities in Health and Human Services embeds community participation within social science theory about community and participation and provides students with both the concepts and practical tools essential for increasing community participation in health and human services
settings.

Theory and concepts for understanding the nature and different types of communities are combined with practical skills for working with communities. This approach enables students to contextualise what is meant by community participation, community development, and collaborative service and program
development, with the skills needed by community practitioners.

Activites and case studies throughout the book are drawn from community health and social care practice and are used to illustrate the principles, approaches, and issues related to working with communities. The activities, when used in conjunction with the 'reflective practice' approach demonstrate
that there are different ways to practice. The importance of integrating people's experiences with concepts and practical skills is a core theme in the text and provides the basis for learning and working with communities.

...a thoughtfully designed publication containing a wide range of case study materials, web-based resources and reflective exercises ideal for use with students across a range of qualifying professional programmes in the health field, and to practitioners new to the concept of working with communities within a social, rather than medical, model of planning and intervention. * International Journal of Integrated Care *
