Rather than a single quantitative or qualitative method, community-based participatory research (CBPR) is a diverse set of research approaches united by their common aim of social justice. HANDBOOK OF COMMUNITY-BASED PARTICIPATORY RESEARCH codifies these methodologies and articulates an expansive vision of health that includes gender equality, safe and adequate housing, and freedom from violence. Topic-based chapters apply the theory and methods of CBPR to real world problems affecting women, ethnic and racial minorities, and immigrant communities such as sexual violence, exposure to environmental toxins, and lack of access to preventive care as well as suggesting future directions for effective, culturally sensitive research. HANDBOOK OF COMMUNITY-BASED PARTICIPATORY RESEARCH is required reading for academics, policy makers, and students seeking meaningful social change through scholarship.
