Community action to prevent alcohol problems : papers presented at the third Symposium on Community Action Research, Florence, Italy, 25-29 September 1995
AbstractThis compilation of papers is the result of the third international symposium on Community Alcohol Projects for the prevention of alcohol problems, which was held in Greve in Chianti (Florence), Italy, from 25 to 29 September 1995. It follows the symposium held in March 1989 in Scarborough, Ontario, and the symposium which took place in San Diego, California, in January-February 1992, both under the title of "Experiences with Community Action Projects for the Prevention of Alcohol and other Drug Problems". In keeping with the ideas of the previous symposia, the organizers of the Greve meeting encouraged participants to take a reflective and process-oriented stance. The following criteria were suggested: describe the community research project; present interaction of research and programme components; discuss process experience; analyse the problems or challenges encountered
