Network-Related Intervention.
Schon, Donald A.
Informal social networks are patterns of relationship and interaction among persons or collectives. This paper (1) outlines a typology of informal networks, conceived from the point of view of their importance to qoals of social policy; (2) describes strategies of intervention which may be directed to the creation or enhancement of one or another of these networks; (3) examines the paradoxes and dilemmas associated with them; and (4) presents examples of three approaches to network-related intervention which appear to escape or mitigate the paradoxes and dilemmas.
