ZAMBRANO, Alba; BUSTAMANTE, Gonzalo  y  GARCIA, Mauricio. Organizational Trajectories and Community Empowerment: An Interface Analysis in Two Communities of the Araucanía Region. Psykhe [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.2, pp. 65-78. ISSN 0718-2228.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22282009000200005.

The main findings of a study that investigated the psychosocial cultural factors affecting the interface between community organizations and public agencies are reported. Four types of organizations are analyzed in 2 different communities, using a qualitative methodology and a structural networks analysis. In both communities the paternalistic, client and semi-client interface type predominate. These types of relationships focus on the delivery of resources by the municipal institution as a way of addressing the immediate needs of the community. In turn, the community organizations center their efforts on short-term objectives and participation aimed at obtaining these resources.

Palabras clave : empowerment; interface approach; community development.
