Self-governance in Communities and Families
"Gary Nelson shows why partnerships between people and social institutions are essential to the well-being of families and thriving communities. He offers a proven, practical method - Community Self-Governance Dialogues - for engaging people in the redesign and revitalization of social institutions. He shows how - by creating opportunities for individuals and families to participate in planning how their institutions are managed, run, and evaluated - this method ultimately empowers people to take control of their own lives. And he reveals how active participation in these dialogues ignites creative ideas and new energy for reshaping those institutions.
