Abstract: Asset Based Community Development (ABCD), introduced to the community development field by John Kretzmann and John McKnight in the early 1990s, conceptualized a new approach to community building that fostered sustainable community development through the recognition and appreciation of community assets. They argued that examining communities through a positive lens fosters a sense of self-reliance and pride among community members, mobilizes community resources to effectuate desired improvements, and ultimately build strong communities. Though deemed a successful approach over the last several decades by practitioners and scholars alike, it relevancy, in its original form is questioned when increasing safety through the establishment of mutually beneficial relationships with public safety officers, particularly in communities of color, is the focal point of desired change. This presentation will discuss several initiatives that embrace the ABCD methodology in an effort to build communities of color in the City of Chicago related to enhancing community and police force relationships and the overall sense of safety within identified Chicago neighborhoods.

Abstract: The Communities That Care (CTC) prevention operating system provides manuals, tools, training, and technical assistance to activate communities to use advances in prevention science to plan and implement community prevention services to reduce adolescent substance use, delinquency, and related health and behavior problems. CTC is designed to reduce levels of adolescent delinquency and substance use through the selection and use of effective preventive interventions tailored to a community’s specific profile of risk and protection. This presentation describes the rationale, intervention, aims, and design of the first group-randomized controlled community trial of the Communities That Care system, called the Community Youth Development Study.

Abstract: With the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act comes several opportunities for community psychologists. Health care providers who were insular and expert-driven, now are required to work with communities to facilitate population-level health outcomes. This means that community psychologists working on wellness, primary prevention of mental disorders, and ecological approaches to community health improvement, have a new ally. This poster will focus on a community psychology approach to grassroots engagement in health system improvement, with an emphasis on facilitating access to care and reduction in disparities in outcomes in Greensboro and Guilford County NC. Participants in the process include recently resettled refugees, the faith community, community based organizations, and the largest regional health system. Strategies used, process and outcome data on community mobilization, and lessons learned will be discussed.

Abstract: The Transdisciplinary Research Consortium for Gulf Resilience on Women’s Health (GROWH) targets health disparities among disaster prone communities on the Gulf Coast by linking communities and researchers through community based participatory research (CBPR). Funded by NIEHS in response to the Gulf Oil Spill, GROWH’s Community Outreach and Dissemination Core (CODC) comprised of Tulane University, Mary Queen of Vietnam CDC, Bayou Interfaith Shared Community Organizing, and the Louisiana Public Health Institute, seeks to strengthen community resilience in vulnerable Gulf Coast populations. The CODC utilized existing CCPH CBPR curriculum to address disparities related to birth outcomes, seafood safety, and air quality. CODC partners implemented the curriculum to strengthen the community academic partnership and ensure timely, cohesive disparity research dissemination strategies. This presentation will report on the successful implementation experience of utilizing a CCPH CBPR curriculum.

Abstract: Active participation in community organizations and cultural events is a strong indicator of resident’s sense of belonging to the community and integration into local storytelling network. The communication infrastructure theory (CIT) provides a useful framework to understand the contextual effects of resident’s participation in community-based cultural events as a part of larger communication environments in the community-building process and civic engagement. This study examines the processes that two community-based events, the Fiestas Patrias and the Korean Festival, undertake in order to play key roles in local storytelling networks that are associated with establishing and strengthening the connections between community residents and local organizations and, as a result, increasing a member’s integration into the community, a necessary step to increasing the civic engagement. I will look at 1) which cultural practices help local events become an integral part of the storytelling network and, as a result, 2) how storytelling roles as undertaken by community organizations and cultural events affect community members’ civic engagement and sense of belonging to their neighborhoods in regard to the CIT perspective. Linear regression analyses of surveys conducted with community participants illustrate that active participation in local events enhance a sense of belonging and engagement in their community by connecting them to other residents through meso level local storytelling networks. It is congruent with the CIT that community-based local events as local storytelling agents bridge the geo-ethnic immigrant communities and local community media and organizations and, as a result, reinforce community engagement in the neighborhood.
