Summary
"Self-Governance in Communities and Families shows how individuals can reconnect to and revitalize their social institutions so that they are effective in serving the needs of all." "Gary Nelson shows why partnerships between people and social institutions are essential to the well-being of families and thriving communities. He offers a proven, practical method - Community Self-Governance Dialogues - for engaging people in the redesign and revitalization of social institutions. He shows how - by creating opportunities for individuals and families to participate in planning how their institutions are managed, run, and evaluated - this method ultimately empowers people to take control of their own lives. And he reveals how active participation in these dialogues ignites creative ideas and new energy for reshaping those institutions. Illuminated by numerous examples and anecdotes, Self-Governance in Communities and Families provides tips for shared learning and accountability, ownership and governance, and the creation of a culture of self-governance."--BOOK JACKET
