Author Abstract:

Photovoice is a participatory action research strategy that places the lens in the hands of the participant. Participants submit photos with accompanying narratives that illustrate their personal experiences regarding the assigned topic. This strategy can be used in individual, group, family, classroom, and youth group settings, with any age, or in qualitative research studies, to help participants share perspectives that are sometimes difficult to verbalize, and assist in creating change based on perceived experiences. Presenters will introduce photovoice, offer examples of implementation, and give attenders opportunities to practice assessing photovoice submissions.
