dc.description.abstract Community workers draw on a broad range of social science theories to guide their practice. Few, however, have systematically examined social-learning theory for its relevance to community practice. In this article, the authors illustrate the usefulness of the theory in two case examples and suggest possible applications in other settings. In developing basic principles of practice, social workers have applied concepts and theories from many social science disciplines. Caseworkers have drawn from nee-Freudian and behavioral psychology, group workers have borrowed from the psychology and sociology of small groups, and generic social workers have looked to organizational and systems theory in addition to casework and group work. But where do community workers -- those engaged in community organization, community development, community planning, and social action -- turn to guide and justify their decisions and actions? Community workers rely on a wide range of concepts and theories, including an understanding of organizational dynamics, the use of political and economic power, and the role of conflict in social change. en
