Primary Prevention in Mental Health and Social Work: A Sourcebook of Curriculum and Teaching Materials.
Nobel, Milton, Ed.
A sourcebook of curriculum and teaching materials pertaining to primary prevention in mental health and social work is presented. Contents include: two articles addressing the theoretical dimensions of primary prevention and the relationship to social work education and practice; five articles describing preventive content that can be integrated into different parts of the social work educational curriculum (practice methods, social policy, research, and field instruction); and an annotated bibliography of the major interdisciplinary literature in primary prevention with particular emphasis on concepts and methods that have utility for curriculum development in primary prevention for social work. The articles and authors are as follows: "A Working Definition of Primary Prevention Related to Social Concerns," (Martin Bloom); "Conceptual Parameters of Primary Prevention," (Robert A. Porter); "Natural Helping Networks and Self-Help Groups," (Lambert Maguire); "Developmental Provision: A Prevention-Oriented Concept in Teaching Social Policy," (Risha W. Levinson); "Evaluating Programs of Primary Prevention: How Can We Know If They Make a Difference?" (Helen Reinherz); "Training in Prevention: An Educational Model for Social Work Students," (Diana Tendler and Karen Metzger); and "Integrating Services for Health Promotion," (Salvatore Ambrosino). The immediate aim of the project was to help graduate social work education programs in developing the ability to create effective policy and practice strategies to promote the delivery of preventive mental health services.
