Clinical Sociology and Community Intervention

Monday, 11 July 2016: 10:45-12:15
Location: Hörsaal 6A P (Neues Institutsgebäude (NIG))
RC46 Clinical Sociology (host committee)

Language: French and English

This session focuses on the analysis and interventions that clinical sociologists engage in to improve the quality of life in communities, whether communities are defined as geographic areas or places, relationships, or as an expression of collective political power. 
Presentations are welcome which discuss the ways in which individuals, community organisations and institutions help to address community issues, such as through improved service delivery; increased home ownership; increasing neighbourhood spirit; transportation initiatives; promotion of health and wellness; prevention of crime and improved climate. 
We also are interested in presentations that analyse the causes of disadvantage (e.g., economic, education, political, racial, ethnic and/or gender  causes) in communities and the need (as well as how) to mobilize people, power and other resources to effect social change and development in such communities.
