Associate Director Darcy Freedman Co-authors New Book
PRCHN Associate Director Darcy Freedman, PhD, and Affiliated Faculty Claudia Coulton,PhD, are two co-authors of Measures for Community and Neighborhood Research, a reference guide that compiles and organizes key measures for community research. The book is a reference guide that compiles and organizes key measures for community research. There are many measures commonly available, but they can be difficult to locate and evaluate. Mary L. Ohmer, Claudia Coulton, Darcy A. Freedman, Joanne L. Sobeck, and Jamie Booth compile the major measures of community practice and assess them for reliability and validity. The book is divided into major areas of measurement, including: methods of measurement, connections in community, community engagement, resources and issues, community organizing and social action, and measures of unequal access. Each measure includes a definition, theoretical frameworks, evaluation, and a description of how the measure has been used. The goal of this text is to provide students, professors, researchers and community-based practitioners with a helpful resource to locate, compare and utilize community and neighborhood measures. This book can be used by research institutions as well as the numerous non-profit agencies and other public and private organizations who work to improve conditions in communities and neighborhoods.
