Research as a Tool in Problem Solving at the Community Level.
Hamilton, Anita C.
This document presents a method, developed by the Institute for Child Advocacy [ICA], (a community based project which seeks to upgrade the quality of children's services in South Central Los Angeles) of using problem solving with community residents and agencies. This method of problem solving, previously used in a study of children being excluded from school, demonstrated that non-professional workers in a community agency can identify a problem, collect data, decide which are the proper channels through which to seek change and carry the process to completion. The art of problem solving is delineated in specific steps. In order to clarify the procedure, a step by step description of the Institute for Child Advocacy's study on excluded children is provided as an example. (Author/AM)
