Photovoice is an established form of participatory action research that uses photography and narrative to empower communities and include the voices of marginalised individuals in the research process. It is recognised as a useful tool to illuminate important factors in impoverished environments that are frequently overlooked. Written for social work students, researchers, and professionals, this is the first volume to focus specifically on photovoice and its applications. In this comprehensive, ""how-to"" guide, the authors describe in detail how to use photovoice in the contexts of youth development, aging, homelessness, independent living among people with disabilities, environmental design and community development, health care, and professional education. Plentiful case studies highlight the use of photovoice in many situations and describe ways to overcome the challenges social workers may face in enacting its methods within their organisations and communities. The book illustrates how social workers can use photovoice to collaborate with marginalised individuals in documenting the poverty and difficulties of their lives and barriers to their well-being. A companion website for readers features interactive examples of photovoice projects and hyperlinks connecting the eBook and website.
