The Community Research and Development Division is hosting an interactive workshop for researchers who use or are interested in community-based participatory action research.  The workshop will (1) offer a foundational orientation to the purpose and process of CBPAR; and (2) provide a context within which CBPAR scholars, both new and old, can learn from each other and build a stronger network.  This one-day workshop will be divided into two sections. In the morning, Section I will cover the following topics: (1) What is CBPAR and Why Do It?; (2) Capacity Building and Community Partnerships; and (3) CBPAR Methodology – Balancing Methodological Rigor with Community Need.  In the afternoon, Section II will cover the following topics: (1) Data dissemination: To Whom, How, and Where; (2) Publishing and Funding: Challenges and Opportunities; and (3) Maintaining Partnerships and Building Steam.  The workshop will be collaboratively delivered by Drs. Charlotte Ryan, Felicia Sullivan, and Jessica Lucero.  The workshop will be interactive in nature and provide opportunities for attendees to discuss their CBPAR research ideas and receive feedback.  For researchers with prior training and/or experience, there will be a breakout session provided to discuss their work and concerns.  Workshop fee includes morning coffee.
