Aprevailing paradigm in social research and community-based interventionsinvolves examining individual problems within various contexts -- from the interpersonal to the community at large. Yet theresearch methodologies usedto support these interventions typically lack the ability to consider datafromthis multilevel, systemic perspective. Methodological Approaches to Community-Based Research presents a range of innovative research methodologies that address this basic problem in community-based research frameworks, therebyfacilitating more encompassing and more nuanced analyses andinterventions. Contributors to this groundbreaking volume offer appropriate methodologies foraddressing specific, community-based problems that are relevant to both researchers and practitioners involved in designing, implementing, and evaluatingsocial, health, and educationprograms from a variety of perspectives, including community psychology, developmental psychology and aging, health and rehabilitation psychology, neuropsychology, industrial/organizational psychology, and consumer psychology, among them. A special feature of Methodological Approaches to Community-Based Research are Web Appendixes that include a variety of research applications (e.g., SPSS, SAS, Mplus, GIS) and detailed guidelines on how to run the applications for analyzing the accompanying data sets.
