  • Look at the varying levels of participation in community work, and when each is appropriate
  • Identify barriers and incentives to participation, including strategies for overcoming the barriers
  • Consider the positives and negatives of networking
  • Identify pitfalls in community meetings and the role of the community development worker in facilitating the group through these
  • Look at our own speaking and listening skills
