Summary
"This volume reinvigorates the field of prevention by presenting a renewed vision suited to the needs of a diverse U.S. population. The editors emphasize the potential of prevention to promote positive development across the life span and to foster social justice. Part I presents the theoretical, conceptual, methodological, and ethical foundations that inform a social justice vision of prevention. Part II examines the design, conduct, and assessment of preventive interventions in a variety of contexts (community, workplace, school, family) and across various targeted psychopathologies or "bad behaviors," such as depression, aggressive/delinquent youth, job "burnout," domestic violence, poor health practices, and racism/sexism. Contributors focus on theory, research, practice, and training in prevention as well as the philosophical, public policy, and economic issues that impact the prevention efforts by psychologists and other helping professionals. This key text defines the field while offering scholars, practitioners, and graduate students a state-of-the-art resource to guide further directions in the science and practice of prevention."--BOOK JACKET
