Designed to provide understanding and practical suggestions about conducting community meetings, this book is an orientation to working with adult groups. It
incorporates strategies, procedures, and techniques regarding discussing issues, identifying problems, searching for alternative solutions, deciding upon alternatives, implementing possible solutions, evaluating options, and feeding back corrective information.
"In addition to very practical ideas, the authors help the novice to see the underlying structure of activities that need to be covered in facilitation. They deal with both the "know-whats" and the "know-whys" using clear language and examples drawn from their own experience." -- Sara M. Steele, University of Wisconsin, Convergence, Vol. XXIX, No. 3, 1996.
