What is Positive Deviance?

Positive deviance is a development approach that utilizes existing practices in the communities, as "discovered" by community members themselves, to address community-identified problems. Positive deviance is culturally appropriate and tailored to the specific community in which it is used.


Hrm. That could have interesting connotations when applied to the fetish/BDSM community :)
