Abstract

This chapter outlines some of the ways in which a community narrative perspective can enrich culturally anchored work, using examples from three studies related to HIV prevention, welfare-to-work policies, and immigrants' use of public benefits. For each study, it describes recent data and discusses how the narrative perspective is reflected in the work, challenges it, and provides guidelines for future research and action.
