I am teaming up with Ann Webb Price of Community Evaluation Solutions to present two no-slides and lecture, experiential workshops. The first, Building Effective Coalitinos focused on how to develop a coaltion and set a foundation that will ensure success. The second, Coaltion Action Planning and Evaluation, will help coalition members to plan effective strategies and evaluate their efforts.
Ann Webb Price of Community Evaluation Solutions and I teamed up to write this book. It is based on our years of experience and extensive education and additional training we have both undertaken throughout our careers.
Along with my colleagues, Dr. Kyrah K. Brown, Justin M. Henry, MPH, Claudy Jean Pierre, BSPH, Tamaya Bailey, MSW, and Jerrise Smith I published a book chapter, Lessons from Conducting an Equity-Focused, Participatory Needs Assessment. This chapter is one of several really great chapters in the open access book, Case Studies in Community Psychology: A Global Lens that was co-edited by Dr. Geraldine Palmer, Todd Rogers, MA, Judah Viola, PhD, and Maronica Engel. You can check it out here: Lessons from Conducting an Equity-Focused, Participatory Needs Assessment – Case Studies in Community Psychology Practice: A Global Lens (rebus.community)
