This outstanding group of evaluators from academia, government,
nonprofits, and foundations explores empowerment evaluation, a
method for using evaluation concepts, techniques, and findings to
foster improvement and self-determination. Empowerment Evaluation
begins with an in-depth examination of this type of evaluation as
it has been adopted in academic and foundation settings. The book
then focuses on the various contexts in which empowerment
evaluation is conducted, ranging from resistant environments (in
which significant effort is required to move from
passive-compliance orientations) to responsive environments (that
already have a tradition of self-determination and community
organizing). Interesting highlights concerning the role empowerment
evaluation has played in the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services' substance abuse prevention programs are detailed
throughout the book. The contributors also provide down-to-earth
tools and technical assistance needed to conduct empowerment
evaluation. This volume concludes with themes that emerge from the
chapters and recommendations concerning next steps. This serves to
strengthen the links between empowerment evaluation and community
