Towards an Ecological Conception of Preventive Interventions.
Kelly, James G.
The work described in this paper on natural environments is designed as an aid in conceptualizing preventive interventions. Primary interest is centered on such questions as: (1) What types of psychological treatments are relevant for social settings?; (2) What are the effects of such treatments upon the behavior of participants in social settings?; (3) What change in organizational functions will emerge as a result of interventions: An emerging ecological thesis is presented by illustrating the kinds of integrative tasks involved in a planned research program. As an introduction for this thesis, four principles from field biology are presented in order to provide the context for discussion of the research program and its implications for preventive services.
