Primary Preventive Counseling: Empowering People and Systems.
Conyne, Robert K.
This book presents an organized picture of how professional counselors and counseling psychologists can become primary prevention agents and shows that this approach is rooted in the very origins of counseling and counseling psychology. Section I presents the origins and a conceptual understanding of primary prevention in mental health. It shows how primary prevention counseling emerges from an integration of counseling with primary prevention. Section II contains the heart of the discussion about primary preventive counseling itself. An organized framework of this type of counseling and descriptions of direct and indirect methods of intervention in primary preventive counseling are presented. Section III discusses two important and challenging matters facing the effective practice of this type of counseling: planning and evaluation. Section IV suggests appropriate graduate education and training necessary for the proper preparation of future primary preventive counselors. Each chapter includes: a summary; a list of issues for reflection and discussion; an annotated bibliography of highly recommended supplementary readings; and a list of references and suggested readings.
