Description : With escalating poverty, rising individualism, outright destruction of social security networks and diminished civil liberties across the world many professionals appear to be settling down for individual fixes rather than system overhauls . Social work has a rich history of community development, yet seems to be a semi-passive spectator to the growing listlessness in our communities. Fuelled by the elites, government and agencies the models of community development seem to perpetuate dependency. A right oriented citizen's perspective has been a long overdue in the discourse of empowerment of people. Professions with espoused commitment to human rights ought to step up their role and and rekindle the roots in community empowerment. 'Some Aspects of Community Empowerment and Resilience' addresses the above central themes and offers fresh and refined approach on aspects of coping and resilience community and building hope.

Description : Community empowerment has been frequently studied at subnational levels but it is less clear how to measure it at a national level. Mixed method approaches would be advantageous, using quantitative data from databases plus qualitative information to derive a range of variables and indicators. This report identifies assessment methods that have been used and evidence for integrating qualitative and quantitative data for national assessments. When resources are limited or there is no current practice of measurement of community empowerment, the simplest approach is to combine a selection of quantitative variables and indicators available in statistical databases. When resources can be allocated, a more systematic approach would supplement such accessible data with some form of rapid qualitative assessment. Ideally, a formal national monitoring and evaluation system would be instituted that collects all the relevant quantitative and qualitative data and combines these into a regularly updated assessment.

Description : Indigenous Peoples and Diabetes is a bold attempt to reframe the meaning of diabetes mellitus as a socio-political disorder from the perspective of Indigenous Peoples, community workers, medical anthropologists, and health professionals working and/or living in North America, Latin America, the Arctic, Australia, and the Indian Ocean. The anthology discusses the effects of social history on the etiology and epidemiology of type 2 diabetes within Indigenous experiences of cultural expansionism and colonial occupation. Indigenous narratives about the right to food, health, emotional experience, and the importance of networks of solidarity provide reflective critiques on community wellness, empowering individuals to regain control of their health, spiritual knowledge, and emotional liberty.The book is a paradigm-breaking endeavor because it challenges the widespread assumption that Indigenous Peoples all over the planet are inherently susceptible to sicken and die from degenerative ailments such as diabetes because of their faulty genotype, poor dietary habits, and sedentary lifestyle. Instead, the creative assemblage of chapters shifts the medical gaze from a potentially diseased body to a diseased colonial and post-colonial history of genocide practiced against Indigenous Peoples to this day.Innovative programs to combat the diabetes epidemic and promote physical and emotional wellness are discussed in detail, such as the Mino-Miijim Good Food for the Future program on the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota; the Kahnawake School Diabetes Prevention Project developed in the Kanienkeha':ka (Mohawk) community of Kahnawake, near Montreal, Canada; and the Cultural Rebuilding Project at the Potawot Health Village in northern California. The authors are inspired by a strong commitment to a liberation medicine and to the belief that access to good food, respect for cultural traditions, and integrative therapies are basic human rights.
