Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Part 1
Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) is the combination of research and partnership building when assessing a community priority. Partnerships are diverse, often including individuals from specific communities, organizations, academic institutions, and/or coalitions. The CBPR approach strives for shared decision making and involvement of partners and community members during all phases of the process. This two-part workshop will introduce CBPR, its principles, critical points in partnership development and issues throughout the research and partnership processes. Issues related to power dynamics, trust, and culture will be highlighted in the workshop sessions. This workshop is inclusive for anyone interested in research and assessment. Each session will incorporate education for organizations implementing and evaluating community programs.
- Understand CBPR within the scope of community engaged research
- Identify where community participation occurs in the research and evaluation process
- Provide strategies for partner engagement and partnership development
