0 Reviews
Empowerment is a term that has grown in use in community development and the business world in recent years yet few books have actually detailed the processes which individuals and groups can use in order to develop. This book includes numerous exercises which enable adult learners to analyze their past experiences; change accepted definitions of power and empowerment and develop strategies to address problems and projects in a more empowered way. Facilitators and trainers are encouraged to adopt and adapt the tools used in this book - tools that include card sorts, stories, myths, case studies, film analysis and personal stories from the author. Used to great effect in Europe, the USA and Canada, the processes have also been used very successfully applied in a number of different cultures including Aboriginal groups in Australia, Moslem women in Malaysia, Danish development workers in Nepal and lecturers in Mongolia!
