Psychological Empowerment in Community-Based Tourism: a case study of Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Abstract
Tourism as a service industry relies on the goodwill and the work of its local communities, in both developed and more rural areas. In these destinations, visitors often sought after the local experience which often includes interactions with tourism workers and their families showing their pride and spirit to serve. This experience often influences return visits wherein the opportunities to personalize interactions and share cultural experiences become substantial offerings that Community-based tourism has created for its visitors and participants. Scholars have studied CBT for some time and explored different aspects of the phenomenon in many areas of the world, including its impact towards empowerment. While many aspects of empowerment have been covered in CBT, including political, economic, psychological and social empowerment, there is a lack of studies that provide an in-depth understanding of each construct. This study intends to explore psychological empowerment in CBT participation through respondents’ own experiences.
