Abstract

In this chapter, the authors present a framework for contextualizing research within the culture of members of oppressed groups. Three concepts relevant to participatory research are presented: societal oppression, being in controlling relationships, and coming to terms with one's identity. The chapter describes how each of these issues affects marginalized groups; the implications that the issues present for community researchers; and the values, constructs, and perspectives offered by community psychology in thinking critically about the issues. The paper also provides guidelines for research with marginalized groups derived from community psychology principles, along with examples to illustrate the use of these principles to contextualize the research in the culture of members of marginalized groups.
