Briscoe, Richard; Baber, M. Yuette; McPhail, Tracy Lea; Harper, Kimberly
This paper contains summaries of research projects of three graduate students participating in the Multicultural Mental Health Training Program at the University of South Florida's Florida Mental Health Institutes. The students' work involved the development of evaluation or research projects with ethnically diverse minority communities. The first study, "Working Together for the Children: School-Community Partnerships in East Tampa" (M. Yvette Baber), describes the results of a qualitative evaluation of locally based efforts to increase levels of interaction between schools and parents from East Tampa, Florida. The success of the East Tampa School-Community Partnership is described. The second study, "Community-Based Job Service Programs: The First Step toward Community Economic Revitalization" (Tracy Lea McPhail), describes the use of community-based job development efforts to increase economic revitalization. The third study, "Health Information Effectively to Middle-Income African-American Communities" (Kimberly Michelle Harper), describes preferred sources of health information for middle-income African-American families, as well as how health risks are perceived differently among ethnic populations. Each summary contains references. (CR)
