It is divided into two parts. The first part discusses the theory of practice -- assumptions, values and beliefs, and principles. The second part deals with the practice of theory -- direct interaction with individuals and groups; community self surveys; community self studies; group discussion and decision making workshops; use of resource people, use of resources other than people; presentation of data and information; creation of organization; group participation and group selection; and methods combinations. Ten case examples are included. (PT)
