520    "As novel, complex social problems increase, especially 
       those involving vulnerable people who reside in 
       challenging places, the limitations of conventional 
       research methods implemented by just one or two 
       investigators become apparent. Research and development 
       alternatives are needed, particularly methods that engage 
       teams of researchers in real world problem solving while 
       simultaneously generating practice- and policy-relevant 
       knowledge. Research methods that effectively tap the 
       expertise of everyday people, especially those impacted by
       these targeted social problems, are a special priority 
       because academic researchers often lack experiential 
       knowledge that stems from direct, everyday encounters with
       these vexing problems. Participatory action research (PAR)
       responds to these manifest needs. It provides a 
       methodological structure and operational guidelines for 
       preparing and deploying people from various walks of life 
       as co-researchers, and it provides a proven strategy for 
       generating practice- and policy-relevant knowledge as 
       problem-solving in real world contexts proceeds."--
