Participatory Research into
cle%3D14> Community Psychology within a Local Context
By Drs. Caterina Arcidiacono & Fortuna Procentese

  Arcidiacono & Fortuna Picture

The aim is to present a series of participatory action research studies
focused on town development and inhabitants' needs. The paper discusses how
to construct a field investigation that pays attention to people's
narratives, as well as how to elaborate a substantive theory, which is
inductively derived from the study of the phenomenon.

Rites of Passage as a Framework

By Drs. David G. Blumenkrantz & Marc B. Goldstein

  Blumenkrantz and Goldstein

This article discusses the potential value of adopting a rites of passage
framework for developing community interventions for youth and suggests
principles for its application. We propose a contemporary working definition
of the concept, how it could reshape the way we approach community and youth
development, and 20 core components of a rites of passage process developed
from our work experience spanning over 40 years.
