Workshop Description:

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 workshop will introduce CBPR, its principles, critical points in partnership development, and aspects to consider throughout the research and partnership processes. This workshop is for anyone interested in conducting research and assessment with communities. The session will incorporate tips and strategies for organizations implementing and evaluating community programs.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand CBPR within the scope of community-engaged research
  2. Identify where community participation occurs in the research and evaluation process
  3. Provide strategies for partner engagement and partnership development
