Appreciative Inquiry is an approach to organizational/community change that looks at strengths and how to build on them. If you’re interested in learning more about Appreciative Inquiry and how you might use it in your work, there are two new titles in the library that can help:
Appreciative inquiry handbook: for leaders of change (2nd ed.)(2008) is a basic primer for appreciative inquiry – what to do, how to do it, and why to do it.
The power of appreciative inquiry: a practical guide to positive change (2nd ed.)(2010) is another practical guide to the principles and practice of this strength-based approach to change.
And, if you’re training others in the use of Appreciative Inquiry, you might find useful suggestions in Appreciative inquiry for collaborative solutions: 21 strength-based workshops (2010).
To borrow any of these titles, email the library at
