In Seminar, you will pretend to work as community coalition members to solve two common problems experienced by communities. Assume that you are in a supervisory or upper management role in whatever type of agency that interests you.
- We are members of a community coalition of a large city and the purpose of our work is to explore effective ways to reduce our drug abuse/addiction problem in adults and children. What are some of the problems that a community might suffer from when many of its members suffer from some form of substance abuse problem?
- We are members of a community coalition of a medium-sized town and want to reduce the increase in violent crimes. How would we begin to research this problem? What are some possible solutions for reducing local crime?
