Abstract

This chapter describes a new research approach-- social advocacy research-- and presents it as a good fit with the poverty and social change interests of the emerging field of humanitarian work psychology. Based on examples from her research studies of low income women in the US and Nicaragua, Schein illustrates the key features of social advocacy research. These characteristics include experiential idea generation, compassion in context, and research for change.
