Participatory planning is an urban planning paradigm that emphasizes involving the entire community in the strategic and management processes of urban planning; or, community-level planning processes, urban or rural. It is often considered as part of community development. Participatory planning aims to harmonize views among all of its participants as well as prevent conflict between opposing parties. In addition, marginalized groups have an opportunity to participate in the planning process.

I wasn’t sure if I was apart of Participatory planning, but the first thing that came to mind was volunteering, community service. So I looked up Community Participatory planning on this site wfp264473.pdf

In the past, I did do some volunteer work but feeding my community. I’m not sure how or who start the program, but I do know that I did my part and that was cooking and feeding people who were in need. My role as a cook was probably the easy part of the planning because all I had to do is get everything ready and just having someone supervise to make sure nothing gets overcooked. Then fix everyone’s plate who showed up.

A participatory planning measure constructs trust, both between your association and the network and among the people in question. This trust can fill in as an establishment for future network improvement and network activity. An example of a time when I was involved in participatory planning included a meeting at work with Human Resources. Myself, along with my immediate supervisor, union representatives and Human resource had to come up with a plan that benefited staff when it came to staff taking time and working from home due to Covid-19. Although, the concern was high due to some employees having health issues or caring for a family member with health issues, upper management felt it was important for staff to continue to serve the public. Some benefits of participatory planning includes the usage of inexpensive resources, helps build self-confidence, help with self development, and they are interesting and fun helping to involve people in the subject.

 In response to your Tammie and Jaimee post below, state how the uses of statistics they mentioned are helpful in the contexts described. For example, you could discuss why alternative ways of communicating information would not work as well.

Honestly, statics is a class I have put off as long as possible, so it’s now or never. Statics in psychology is used to collect and analyze large quantities of data. Psychology relies upon statistics to assess the meaning of things studied and the importance of bias, representation, measurement, significance, and correlations. Therefore, learning to analyze and record data.

One way I can think of that statistic’s is used in auto insurance. When I was living in Arizona my auto insurance was cheaper than when I moved back to Texas. Looking at stats for things such as flooding, tornados, hailstorms increased my rates here in Texas, unlike Arizona where it is just hot as heck and dry most of the time. Therefore, looking at a higher possibility to file a damage claim, which let me tell you is a nightmare after a hurricane.

Statistics is a vital requirement for psychology because it proves that our data is accurate or false to certain issues. In my opinion, a psychologist is the scientist when it comes down to research, gathering data, and using analysis to complete an authorized case study. In order to seek diagnoses you must follow statistics in order to pick the right treatment for that patient. There are a lot case studies that uses statistics as a way of answering complex theories and complex data. 

I previously had a class about business statistics and analysis last year. I learned more about probability distribution, standard deviation, how to calculate statistics and understanding charts and graphs to help me calculate data from a case study. The case study can be about the causes of cardiac arrest, causes of bipolar disorder, and other unknown health issues. I learned that it can be easy to miscalculate a chart or graph, you must follow a precise calculation in order for you to prove accuracy in your data. Statistics can help support your case study and it can help other researchers to follow your method and treatments for better quality of care.
