ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 6 Executive Summary This project created an asset map of Ketchikan while exploring the advantages of implementing an asset based approach in a rural, Southeast Alaskan community. In conducting this project, the research aimed to answer three questions: 1: What are the formal and informal assets existing in K etchikan? 2: What are the unique characteristics of Ketchikan residents that are perceived to be providing resiliency? 3: Do participants involved in the creation of an asset map perceive value in the process? Through secondary data collection, focus grou p sessions, and follow up surveys, the project produced a list of 434 assets in Ketchikan as well as five visual maps . The data also revealed that residents are heavily influenced by their physical environment and changing industries. F ocus group sessions created a common reflection on the geographic location, island boundaries, and harshness of the weather economy dominated by natural resource development (fishing, mining, logging, e tourism economy was likewise discovered to provide resiliency . F ollow u p survey responses, as well as generally positive perspective s expressed during the focus group sessions , indicated that participants viewed the process as an overall po sitive one. Because of this, a recommendation that the KWC complete a more in depth, individual level asset map was offered.
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 7 Introduction Asset based approaches to community development are becoming a n exciting option for practitioners interested in capitalizing on their existing strengths and resources . These approaches seek to understand and enhance the characteristics of a population that are providing positive health outcomes. Unlike deficit driven models, which tend focus on community problems and needs, asset based approaches prioritize and build upon the mechanisms within a community that are providing resiliency . Asset mapping is one asset based method that helps communities identify these mechanisms. sidered the resources, organizations, individuals, associations, and qualities that are contributing to a healthier community. Asset mapping is a technique that pinpoints those assets through a process by which community members identify the various resources, characteristics, and opportunities contributing to a higher quality of life. Oftentimes, the result of this inventory is presented with a visual map. The aim of this capstone project is to produce an asset map of the identified strengths and resources currently available in Ketchikan. Ketchikan, Alaska is a small, island community on the southern tip of Southeast Alaska. A wa terfront town primarily built on piling s, it is known for its breathtaking beauty and is fond ly There are about 14,000 year round residents who live on 32 miles of road . The main economies are fishing, ship building, and tourism. Residents who live her e often praise the g ood natured people and the beautiful natural surroundings (United Way & McDowell Group, 2007). During the process of examine the characteristics of Ketchikan residents that are perceived to be contributing t o its resiliency one dimension of community health .
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 8 Client The Ketchikan Wellness Coalition (KWC) is an innovative organization working to . The founders of the KWC recognized that improving community health required a multifaceted approach , and that individual dimensions of health and organizations and developed several sub task forces. Together, the sub task forces co mbine to form the KWC. The KWC use s its collaborative power to identify overlapping risk and protective factors within multiple social issues and then concentrate s their resources on where those factors intersect . The result is a reduc ed duplication and a more effective and efficient response. One of the core values of the KWC is to respond to community issues with current and accurate data . They requested an asset map to gain more insight to the available resources and strengths in Ketchikan . There are benefits to asset mapping that extend beyond simply identifying available resources ( Goldman, K. & Schmalz, K , 2005) . The process of identifying and inventorying local assets creates a shared understanding among the participants of the process . By listing and focusing on the assets in the community, participants are reminded that there are great things occurring some of which they may not be aware (Morgan & Ziglio, 2007) . Participants come to understand that the resources needed to combat social inequities and health concerns are often already available within their reach (Kretzmann & McKnight, 1993) . This is a powerful realization that can jumpstart robust movements toward positive change. Taking this into consideration , this project will also investigate t he benefits of implementing an asset map in a rural, Alaskan community.
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 9 A sset maps are typically used to identify and inventory individual expertise and skillset s the intent being to connect one another. This capstone project , however, will not focus on individual capacities, but will explore the organizational level assets and physical place s . This capstone will go one step further and look at the traits of Ketchikan residents that are contributing to its resiliency. F inally, it will discuss the perceived value in the process of conducting an asset map . The project aim ed to answer the following research questions: 1: What are the formal and informal assets existing in Ketchikan? 2: What are the unique characteristics of Ketchikan residents that are perceived to be providing resiliency? 3: Do participants involved in the creation of an asset map perceive value in the process ? The next section is a review of the literature relating to asset based models and the benefits and challenges of asset mapping . The methodology section outlines the process taken to perform several focus group sessions . A discussion of the findings as well as recommendations for the client based on the findings will follow. Literature Review A promi sing body of literature has emerged around the use of asset based approaches for community development and health promotion (Whiting et al, 2012; Glass, 2001; Morgan & Ziglio, 2007; Kreztmann & McKnight, 1993) . Researchers are enthusiastic about the applic ation of asset based models and some have begun shift ing from deficit based approac hes to those that highlight community strengths (South et al, 2017) . Asset maps are one asset based approach that have caught the attention of researchers , with an increasing number of articles commenting on the potential to improve health outcomes (Whiting et al, 2017; Kreztmann & McKnight, 1993) . D espite the promise of asset models, however, it appears there is less research connecting asset based approac hes with proven health advancements (South et al, 2017). Instead, a wealth of
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 10 research has been documented on the potential of this strategy for improving community health. The following literature review will outline the justification researchers have used to propose shifting from deficit based to asset based models; describe the best practices for implementing an asset map (one asset based approa ch); explore the gaps in the literature; and discuss areas for potential research. Shift ing from Deficit M odels to Asset Models Despite an abundance of data demonstrating the extent to which populations are impacted by inequalities and social issues, there is little data outlining the effectiveness of various strategies to effectively reduce inequalities (Whitehead & Dahlgren, 2006) and the evidence that suggest s that some of the current strategies seek ing to address health inequities are failing to do so (Whiting et al, 2012). Deficit based models are one approach that have been criticized because of their focus on the needs and problems within a community (Mor gan & Ziglio, 2006). Researchers propose this as a problem because it implies that aspects of the community , itself , are inherently t he problem and suggests that if things are to be repaired, solutions need to come from the outside (Goldman , 2005) . A consequence of this, suggested by Kretzmann & McKnight, is that a reliance T his has potential adverse impacts on communities as it cre ates incentives for disadvantaged populations to paint the mselves as worse off than other populations in order to lure funding from potential grantors (Morgan & Ziglio, 2006). Deficit based approaches , when used in isolation, miss an important step in the process McKnight, 1993; Goldman & Schmalz, 2005). By not providing a complete representation of a
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 11 community acknowledg ing that even when a host of maladies exist there are traits and assets that are contributin ). Despite these set of deficiencies, deficit approaches continue to be the dominant approach to health policies (Whiting et al 2012, Morgan & Ziglio 2007; South et al 2017, Rotegard et al 2009). There are many benefits to the deficit driven model indeed, t here is no other way to identify community problems and clarify what specifically is causing those proble ms . But a lone , t hey are insufficient in reducing health disparities (Whiting et al 2012). Combining deficit based approach with asset based models , however, helps color a complete picture of a community (Morgan and Ziglio, 2007). Using this reasoning , asset model proponents suggest that the deficit model is important and necessary but should be used as one strategy within a complete set of approaches ( Morgan, 2014) . Asset Based Advantages In contrast to t raditional deficit based models that seek to identify the problems and needs of a community , asset models look at what is going well in a population. Sometimes called empowerment models, asset based approaches give citizens control in their decisio ns (Kretzmann & McKnight, 1993) . These models attempt to identify strong relationships within the community and build confidence in capacity to improve their own circumstances (Foot & Hopkins, 2010). Kretzmann and McKnight (1993) assert that the effectiveness of asset mode ls lie s in their capacity to reshape the way communities view themselves . Further , they suggest that the process of implementing an asset based approach is itself one that contributes to positive outco mes . By creating a narrative around positive attributes, that communi ty engages in a social construction of itself that is more favorable and optimistic. This shift in reframing the approach is common in the literature with many authors articulating the
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 12 benefits of combining the two methods. Increasingly, the asset based model is becoming the preferred approach , with many countries around the world implementing these strategies (McLeary, 2011) . In fact , these approaches are becoming mainstream in European policies and frameworks (WHO 2017). The asset based approach began as an offshoot of (1979, 1996). Antonovsky was critical of the field of public health for not acknowledging the characteristics that facilitated a healthier life. Antonovsky believed that publ ic health providers could improve health outcomes not by decreasing disease and poor health conditions, but by promoting the factors that made people healthy. Under this reasoning, which he call ed salutogenisis, people possess coping mechanism s , and by ide ntifying what thos e are and promoting them practitioners could increase overall health outcomes and thus reduce diseases . This rationale funnels into current literature of asset based versus deficit based approaches. Asset Mapping At their core, asset based approaches are a methodology for recognizing and taking advantage of the assets in a community. Using this approach, practitioners gain access to valuable information , and community members begin to realize how others perceive and experie nce the same place (McLean, 2011). Asset maps are often used as a spring board for practitioners in their quest to understand what resources are available and can later be use d for strategic planning and community development strategies (Guy e t al, 2002). The process practitioners take to complete an asset map is significant. Morgan (2014) states a predetermined community vision or goal that allows the assets to be con nected for productive ughout the literature (Griffin & Farris, 2010; Kretzmann
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 13 & McKnight, 1993; Crane & Skinner, 2003; South et al., 2017). T he application of asset maps within specific health contexts such as nursing (Rotegard et al., 2009 ) or school counseling ( Rutten et al., 2007) has been explored, but guides for the mapping process for specific disciplines has not been presented (Whiting et al . , 2012). The re are, however, useful field maps for universal asset mapping processes (Kretzmann & McKnight, 1993; Office of Learning Technologies, 2002; Goldman et al., 2005). A ssets. What is cons idered an asset varies because the interpretation is contingent upon the perspective of who is generatin g the definition ( Crane & Skinner, 2003) . Most often , definitions of assets include any factor or resource that promotes or sustains health and well being (Morga n & Ziglio, 2007; Friedli, 2012; McLean, 2011) . Kretzmann and McKnight (1993 ) further specify that assets can be only those resources that are access ible and usable to a community; without accessibility, they claim, resourc es are unusable and therefore not effective. Rotegard et al (2010) narrow the definition of assets to those within the 4). Whiting et al (2012) note that this variance in defining health assets creates a challenge for practitioners hoping to im plement the asset model. A common definition , agreed upon by researchers, would advance the asset based literature . Asset levels. While there is no consensus on the definition of a health asset , there is concurrence in the literature regarding the classification of health assets into three levels: individual, community, and org anizational or institutional assets (Morgan & Ziglio, 2007; Foot & Hopkins 2010; Goldman et al 2005; Kretzmann & McKnight, 1993; McLean, 2011; Griffin & Farris 2010). At the individual level, assets include resiliency skills, social competence, protective factors, and the unique abilities people possess that contribute to a vibrant and healthy community. Community level assets consist of the associations and relationships that promote a
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 14 well connected and thriving social network system. And organizational or institutional level assets are the environmental systems and resources that support health and well being , safe environments, and enhance quality of life indicators (Kretzmann & McKnight, 1993) . Disadvantages A sset model s are promising to researchers because they have the ability to shift the balance of power back int o the hands of the communities but they are not without criticism. Friedli (2012) , for example, offers one of the more powerful criti ques of asset based models suggesting th at just as the deficit model offers a limited solution to health and well being, the asset model , unaccompanied with other approaches, do es not question the very structural factors which produce unequal communities. Others have likewise found inadequate li nks between asset based approaches and health outputs and call for more research to substantiate this connection (South et al, 2015; Rutten et al, 2007). Further, it is suggested t hat asset based approaches tend to be more time consuming make them a less d esirable option for practitioners (Whiting et al, 2012). While this is an encouraging field , more research is needed including an analysis of the health outcomes of asset based approaches (Friedli, 2012) . To fully capitalize on such a promisin g model, researchers should consider research which connect s the asset mapping p rocess with health improvement. M ost of the discussion falls within the needs based ver sus asset based dichotomy, pitting the two against one another, but the more meaningful c onversation lies in the linkage around the process of asset mapping and enhanced health outcomes (South, 2017) . Little research has been done on this linkage suggesting that this might be a n area of future research.
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 15 Much of the literature touches on the in herent benefits of an asset based approach as opposed to the downsides of deficit model s , with deficit models painted as approaches that highlight community blemishes. It appears asset mapping help can fill this gap by providing a more complete picture of the community. However, t he literature lacks in its exploration of how the asset mapping process es itself offers advantages. A question remains as to whether or not the process of implementing an asset map add s value to a community. In addition to iden tifying the community assets in Ketchikan, this capstone will explore this gap in the literature by attempting to understand the perceived value of implementing an asset mapping project in a rural , Alaskan community . Statement of Purpose This capstone aims to explore three, distinct research questions during an attempt to create an asset map of Ketchikan, Alaska: 1: What are the formal and informal assets existing in Ketchikan? 2: What are the unique characteristics of Ketchikan residents that are perceive d to be providing resiliency? 3: Do participants involved in the creation of an asset map perceive value in the process? The most recent assessment measuring residents perception of their own capacities is the Compass II Survey done by United Way (2007). T he intention of that survey was to identify areas of strength in Ketchikan, as well as issues important to community members such as homelessness and substance abuse. Interestingly, the publishing of this survey was the impetus for the establishment of the Ketchikan Wellness Coalition (KWC Community Assessment, 2012). Several needs assessments have been implemented over the years including the United Way Compass II Survey (2007) the PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center Needs Assessment (2016) and the bienni al Youth Risk Behavior Survey (2017). Additionally, there are resource
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 16 lists for particular populations such as for seniors (Senior Directory, 2019), youth (Ketchikan Youth Activity Booklet, 2010), and individuals seeking social services (Ketchikan Resourc e Guide, 2016). Yet despite these available assessments and inventories, there is no comprehensive list of resources organized through the lens of asset mapping, nor are any of these resource lists The asset map created during this process will use input from community stakeholders and the aforementioned guides and directories to create a comprehensive list of resources and assets . Further, the project will examine what it is about the residents who liv e in Ketchikan that makes a stronger community the non tangible assets that are believed to be yielding resiliency. T his project also aims to explore a gap in the literature regarding the potential value of the process . The following expectations are made 1) stakeholders will be knowledgeable and will be selected to participate in the project based on their perceived knowledge of the community; 2) their expert knowledge will produce a comprehensive list of assets; and 3) given that the data gathering proce ss asks participants to reflect on the positive qualities of their community, it is anticipated that the asset m apping project will be perceived to be valuable. Methodology Using a qualitative research approach , the author held a series of focus groups to gather information about the assets of Ketchikan . This data collection method was selected as it was one recommended method by the literature (Goldman & Schmalz, 2005; Kretzmann & McKnight, 1993). The author also used secondary data collection of existing resources guides and directories to assemble a preliminary list of assets to use as a spring board for participants during focus group sessions . Sample Selection
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 17 The author used nonprobability, purposive sampling to identify focus group participants. Ketc hikan Wellness Coalition staff selected an initial sample group who were believed to be knowledgeable about the various events and sectors in the community. Expert sampling is a recommended method for assem b ling asset maps (Kretzmann & McKnight,1993; Goldman & Schmalz, 2005). Following the suggestion of Goldman & Schmalz (2005), snowball sampling was implemented by way of the initial sample selection identifying future focus group participants. Thirty two people were identified and in vited to attend. The author contacted this sample group via the email shown in Appendix A. Of the invited sample participants, 16 people participated . For the purposes of this inventory, sample participants were residents of Ketchikan. The Ketchikan Gatew ay Borough encompasses the entire Revillagigedo Island, of which only a small portion is inhabited. The City of Ketchikan is located within the Borough; this is an important distinction because there are residents and resources outside Ketchikan city limit s but still within the scope of what is considered part of Ketchikan. Assets were included if they were identified as being available and accessible within the roaded or trailed areas of the Borough. Focus G roups A total of four focus groups were conducted with 16 total participants. Questions were asked in an open ended fashion and were pretested with KWC staff and during individual interviews prior to the first session . Focus groups were conducted until data saturation was obtained (Fusch & Ness, 2015). T o obtain the asset list, the author presented the unified list of existing resource guides to each focus group asking participants to identify missing items. to the open ended questions were written on a visible paper in front of th e
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 18 the subsequent sessions in order to save time listing similarly identified locations and to generate new information. After receiving permission from participa nts, focus groups were recorded for future analysis. The focus group protocol is listed in Appendix B. During the first focus group, it of Ketchikan resident s. These questions were modified for the following three sessions . Data received during the questions on community resiliency was analyzed and coded to determine themes. To measure the perceived value of the asset map process, the author sent out a follow up evaluation to participants upon completion of focus group sessions. The survey, available in Appendix C, was emailed and collected via Survey Monkey. Two key questions were asked to n anything new during the follow up survey was sent to all 16 attendees . Of the 16 focus group participants, 9 responded to the survey . Results The focus groups spu rred creative conversations and revealed valuable information about the community. Complete focus group session notes are available in Appendix D. Coded analysis of the themes around resiliency traits are available in Appendix E. After combining the existi ng resources and directories with focus group data, 316 resources and 118 physical places were identified as assets for a total of 434 assets . Complete a sset inventories and visual maps are listed in Appendix F. In addition to the asset data , the analysis of the focus groups revealed two themes with regard to the characteristics of Ketchikan that make it a more resilient community:
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 19 (1) the physical environment and (2) industry influence . The physical environment referred to boundaries d ue to it being an island, the remoteness of its location, the connectio n to nature and the sea, among other comments . The theme surrounding c hanging industries represented transient populace, its entrepreneurial spirit, the plentiful professional opportunit ies, and other opinions. These two themes were observed during every question and throughout every focus group. Moreover, questions about the characteristics of Ketchikan residents produced responses that were predominantly positive in perspective , even when describing characteristics that are typically viewed negatively (such as the isolation and rain). Finally, it was found that the follow up survey captured positive opinions about the asset map experience. Physical Environment One of the central themes to emerge was that Ketchikan residents are profoundly shaped by their physical environment. This subject was repeatedly articulated in various ways, reoccurring during every focus group session. Under this broader theme, two sub theme s environment shapes their tenacity and ability to cope with adversity. Participants repeatedly mentioned the physical boundaries of the island, noting that this created a population of people who are aware of their own isolation fostering a high sense of self efficacy as a result. One participant remarked that he believed residents were more reliant on one another than past communities he Another participant discussed how the isolation of livi ng on an island made residents more resourceful,
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 20 and suggested that living in a remote environment meant they had less access to abundant resources. As a result of this, they were more creative with the few resources they possessed . Weather. Participants discussed the impact the weather had on their behavioral health, noting that a rainy environment might be causing them to be more resilient. Ketchikan, located in the middle of a temperate rain forest, is one of the rainiest communities in the United State s averaging over 165 inches of rain each year (Alaska Public Lands Information, n.d.). This Ketchikan is self selecting. Those who are able to adapt stay , leave. And those who love it end up staying for a lifetime. The people who end up living here are pretty tough Another participant discussed that youth growing up in Ketchikan play outdoor sports rain or shine and this increased their tolerance level. H e said this fosters resiliency as a result ! Participants also considered the rain to be a trait that contributed to a strong arts community, t heorizing that the constant rain causes more people to stay indoors, creating art projects and resulting in the cultivation of a robust arts culture. Indeed, Ketchikan is listed as one of the top 100 small ar ts communities in the U.S. (Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce website, strong art s culture as unique from other communities , and as something that provides benefits for the mental health of residents. Industry Influence The other major th eme that emerged was that the shift in local industries had an impact on residents. One participant suggested the change in economies resul ted in a change in residents behavior . There was a shift in industries a few decades ago . After the pulp mill close d in the mid nineties, the tourism industry filled the gap. The result was that Ketchikan changed too.
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 21 This brought a lot of people from the outside and the community changed its focus. Ketchikan [has become] a trans ient, but integrated population . Others mentioned that this shift travel to Ketchikan to work seasonally, but many people end up staying here. They bring diverse adds a lot of value to the community . Perceived Value Overall, the participants who responded to the follow up survey regarded the process as a positive one. Survey responses are listed in App endix G . All who responded reported learning something new dur ing the focus group. When asked if participants felt more excited about Ketchikan after the focus group sessions , six reported feeling more excited and three said they felt about the same. One person noted in the comments section that they had an overall positive view of Ketchikan that would be hard to change. None of the respondents reported feeling less excited about Ketchikan. Upon completion of each session, several participants verbally shared with the author that they believed this process to be valuable. One participant said this of the ned more about community resources and that it changed their perspective on Ketchikan: their history and background, and I gained a different perspective on the community through their vision . Many comment s afte r the focus group sessions suggested not only that it was a positive one, but that they were appreciative of the process itself. Data Limitations The extent to which the data is complete relies on the knowledge and perspective of sample participants. It i s likely some assets were not identified and the identified groups,
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 22 individuals, and associations will change over time. This asset map, then, will have likely left out several perceived resources and assets. While it is presumed data saturation was reache d for the themes , the small sample size may have indicated that some perspectives of individuals in the community were not included. Additionally, the author intentionally chose not to define terms during the focus group so as to stimulate creative the participant to interpret. This lack of a n agreed upon definition could have altered the perspectives of each participant. Discussion The focus group sessions identified a broad inventory of current assets and provided insight on the research questions raised in this study. Ketchikan residents report being a resourceful people who have designed a connected network of groups and resources to support their needs. They expressed that they are heavily influenced by their physical location an d by their economic industries two characteristics they perceived to be contribut ing to their resilien cy. F inally, their responses indicated that they believed the process to be valuable. The following section discusses the fi ndings raised by each question and provides recommendations for future research. What are the formal and informal assets existing in Ketchikan? A comprehensive asset list was obtained using secondary data collection and supplemental information from the focus groups . While it is acknowledged that the asset map may not be perfectly complete , its wide range suggests that Ketchikan has a diverse and rich array of resources available at its disposal. The list of physical places that are considered assets was extensive. Participants were able to name many physical places on the island that provide wellness. The places already named in
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 23 previous focus groups were presented during subsequent sessions. This created an exciting challenge for the last focus group pa rticipants, who remarked that the task caused them to think more creatively about where people gather. The accompanying map of these locations is a compelling one that captures the breadth of assets present in the community. What are the unique characteri stics of Ketchikan residents that are perceived to be providing resiliency? The focus group sessions highlighted the features in Ketchikan that are contribut ing to more resilient residents . The conversations around resiliency characteristics were insightful and illuminating . T environment of the community and the shifting industr ies . Each of these themes seemed to fit the narrative the community has of itself (Ketchikan Visitors Bureau, 20 19; Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce, 2019; Ketchikan Story Project, 2019) . Historically, Ketchikan has been propelled by four major industries: mining, fishing, timber and tourism (Kiffer, 2009). Since the closing of the pulp mill in the mid 1990s, timber ha s decreased and tourism has taken its place (Dudzak, 2017). This shift has brought seasonal workers into Ketchikan from all over the world (Kiffer, 2009). Based on the data from the focus groups, this shift in industries has had a profound impact on the co mmunity. Participants recognized that the evolution of their economic industry facilitated a community that has become more adaptable; thus making them a more resilient population in the process. Throughout the focus groups , individuals repeatedly referen ced a significant impact of the environment. Residents spoke to the durability it takes to endure the elements , but they also remarked on the appreciation gained from living in such beautiful surroundings. Participants acknowledged that the isolation from the road system made them resourceful, aiming to solve
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 24 problems on their own because they had no choice a survival technique. Naturally this would make for a more resilient population , one th at is accustomed to working out challenges on their positive way, rather than suggesting these hardships as disadvantages, they viewed them as strength buildi ng leading into the third research question. Do participants involved in the creation of an asset map perceive value in the process? The data from the focus groups and follow up survey suggest the asset map provided value to the participants. T he process of identifying their assets allow ed participants to examine some of the characteristics that are producing a resilient population. Discussions on the implications of living on an island in a temperate rainforest could very easily become cynical and negative . Indeed, it could be surmised that living on an island receiv ing over thirteen feet of rain annually creates its challenges . Yet , while identifying the characteristics of resiliency through the lens of asset mapping , participants created a na rrative that lent a more optimistic discussion of these factors . They viewed negative characteristics positively simply by reframing the characteristics through an Rather than implying that the isolation and intense weather patterns were an noyances , participants viewed them positively , and remarked that the rain and isolation shape d the community in beneficial ways . This suggests that the process of implementi ng an asset map might have altered t he participants . Further, w hen asked if the focus group session changed their excitement of Ketchikan, most participants said it had, further suggesting that an asset mapping process offered a valuable experien ce . Recommendations The process of conduc t ing focus groups to create an asset map resulted in a positive experience for participants but it did not assess assets at the individual level. Kretzmann &
ASSET MAPPING IN KETCHIKAN 25 McKnight (1993) suggest that the assessment of individual skills and capacities can be a valuable proc ess . Individuals within a community have skillsets that can be harnessed and used to form stronger resources . To access this data, researchers must collect primary data on a wide scale , a process that was be yond the scope of this project. Considering the v alue of this initial asset map, and the potential value of individual level asset maps, i t is recommended the KWC consider conducting an asset mapping exercise to inventory individual capacities. By doing so, they may uncover even more information about th e community , while fostering positive perspectives about the community in the process . Conclusion This project produce d an asset map that explored tangible assets, but also the unique traits that are shaping community members health and wellness . More over , this project aimed to look at the process of creating an asset map and shed a bit of light on the perceived value of an as set based approach . Very early on in the process the author anecdotally recognized that participants w ere happy during the exercise , indicating that it was perceived by them to be a meaningful activity . While the exact value of the asset map project was not comments that the process yielded some usefulness by shifting their perspective to a more optimistic view of their community. Through this unders tanding that asset maps are considered a beneficial process , one could justify their use in achieving positive community change and it was recommended the KWC consi der an individual level asset map . In summary, the asset map of Ketchikan provided value to the community particularly the KWC, and it added scholarly insight into the process of implementing asset based community development .

An asset map is an inventory of all the resource s and characteristics within a community that provide resilience against negative health and well being outcomes. Asset maps are an asset based approach to solving community issues. Asset based models, unlike deficit based models, go beyond identifying the deficiencies and gaps in a community. They shed light on the positive characteristics which are helping a community sustain favorable outcomes. instead th Ketchikan? right? ignoring the problems, but are instead recognizing we already have some of the tools available to confront those problems. The end result will be a comprehensive inventory of the resources available at our disposal. What is Considered an Asset? parks, the Monthly Grind, Ward Lake shelters, outdoor campsites, the police department, or it sector can all be considered positive assets that are contributing to this is why your participation is so valuable. You've already been identified as a valua ble asset to the community and very likely, you're aware of other valuable assets. I highly encourage you to contribute your expertise to this inventory by participating in this focus group. Why You?

To analyze, synthesize, think critically, solve problems and make decisions Without a doubt, the most impactful understanding of this competency came with during my introduction to adaptive lead ership. Understanding the role of a leader in solving adaptive problems highly impactful . Under this reasoning, p roblems are best solved if all the information is gathered before making a decision , and, the information gathered is looked at though an unbia sed lens . This project mimicked this competency by requir ing a significant amount of information gathering, including literature on asset based approaches and best practices, and a significant synthesizing of data after the focus group sessions.

Blending an academic study into a tangible deliverable presented an interesti ng challenge. I resolved this quandary through the exploration of the none tangible assets of Ketchikan residents.

Another challenge I faced was to articulate the value of participation in an asset mapping process to stakeholders who were unfamiliar with the project. Often I reached out to individuals I had never met before, and who were not aware of the work we were t rying to accomplish. The request to participate had to be succinct enough the invitee would continue reading , but detailed enough to communicate the importance of the project. The resulting email invitation was one that drew in at least half of those who w ere invited. In order to answer the second research question, I was also required to articulate main themes that emerged during the data gathering process, sifting through diverse perspectives and finding commonality. This challenging activity resulted i n a perspective that integrated many ideas into a common concept. In conclusion, I would not have been able to complete this project without the aforementioned competencies that I obtained throughout the course of this public

I am grateful to the School of Public Affairs faculty and staff for the guidance and support I received throughout this journey.
