An invitation to the launch of Empowerment in Action and to meet Jennie Fleming, our new Visiting Fellow in the School of Social Sciences at Nottingham Trent University.

To celebrate the publication of the second edition of this landmark groupwork text, we would like to invite you to join us for a book launch and discussion with two of the authors, Jennie Fleming and Dave Ward. Jennie Fleming joined the School of Social Sciences in 2013 as a new Visiting Fellow, specialising in social action and participatory research. Dave Ward is Professor of Social and Community Studies at De Montfort University.

15 years on from first publication, this new edition of Empowerment in Action builds on a classic groupwork model that has stood the test of time and continues to be used as a paradigm for empowerment across the world today. Through fresh examples and the latest research, the authors have substantially updated the model to reflect contemporary social issues and new applications to groupwork.

Offering a step-by-step method that is applicable across all settings, this book will help people to identify, take control and bring about change in their own lives. This is an essential read for anyone interested in groupwork, whether as a student, practitioner, trainer, service user or community member.

Drinks and light refreshments will be served and copies of Empowerment in Action will be available to buy at a discounted rate.
