Abstract
I am delighted to introduce this special issue, which brings together a range of community approaches to problems which counselors and social workers might otherwise address through more conventional individual, family therapy, or social work interventions. Each of these articles proposes a direct inclusion of social or cultural engagements as part and parcel of work alongside clients. This kind of therapeutic and social work has implications for theory—for example, how to locate problems and alternatives to them—and implications for practice: how is community defined “on the ground?” In what arenas do “therapy” and social work take place?
