Generally, it can be said that relational and network perspectives have an ability toprovide empirical and conceptual links between different levels of analysis. These levels ofanalysis may reflect a transactional view which helps them in understanding neighborhood andcommunities. Furthermore, it is also defined that important concepts of community psychologysuch as empowerment, health promotion, and coalition building can be understood in aneffective manner by employing network and relational perspectives. On the basis of suchknowledge, one can easily draw necessary themes and recommendations for future advancementin the field of community psychology.M. Boyd, N. (2014).
