Cueva, Melany
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n125 p79-90 Spr 2010
What does it mean to provide community-based health education that respects adults of diverse cultures and ways of being in the world? How does one nurture meaningful learning opportunities that awaken possibilities as a catalyst for understanding, conversation, and action? In this article, nurturing place, sharing power, heart listening, talking story, engendering humor, and the expressive arts are discussed as appreciative ways to add depth and dimension to community-based health education with diverse adult learners.
