McLeroy, Norton, Kegler, Burdine, and Sumaya (2003), in “Community-Based
Interventions,” provided a useful typology for contrasting perspectives in
community focus for incorporation in interventions. The community was presented
as a setting, a target, a resource, and an agent. The application of these
various perspectives results in a continuum of community-based interventions.
In the light of the above statement, describe an affected community in these
various roles in a major public health disaster in the U.S. We know of
hurricanes Katrina and Rita and wildfires in California. Feel free to cite
personal examples or experiences to substantiate your claims.
