Abstract

Community practice is one of the most important, yet perhaps most neglected, practice areas within the helping professions. This explores the uses of poetry for community work. It does so by exploring the strengths perspective and its relationships to community practice and by presenting current uses of poetry for community development and change. A case example, taken from experience, is also presented. It is the hope of these authors that this article will inspire human service workers to think creatively about alternative vehicles for community practice.
