    These are all great questions.  With respect to the questions about research methods – community psychologists use a broad range of methods, including traditional experimental methods involving random assignment.  However, given the difficulty of doing random assignment in community settings, other kinds of comparison groups or research designs are often employed.  In addition, community psychology makes use of qualitative methods (e.g., interviews, case studies, focus groups, narratives) that add to our understanding of the context and meaning of the phenomena we study.
