A Ten-Step Model for Team Planning for Primary Prevention.
Dickel, C. Timothy; Boytim, James A.
With greater and greater interest in prevention activities by teachers and counselors, a strategy for systematic development and implementation of preventive intervention was developed based on George Albee's work. It includes these 10 steps: (1) describe in writing the population for whom you wish to plan a prevention intervention; (2) list the organic factors (illnesses, health habits, etc.) that can play a role in causing emotional or behavioral problems in this population; (3) list the social and environmental stress events and circumstances that are likely to impinge on the lives of people in this population; (4) list sources and kinds of exploitation that may occur in the lives of people in this population; (5) list the skills/attitudes that will help this population cope with, and grow in, their particular life situation; (6) list the actions that will help build the self-esteem of each person; (7) list the types of support systems and specify the role of each in promoting the coping, growth, and self-esteem of members of this population; (8) specify two goals and accompanying objectives for decreasing the organic factors, reducing the stress factors, and eliminating the exploitation in this population; (9) specify objectives and goals for increasing the coping skills, building self-esteem, and developing appropriate support groups for this population; and (10) explicate a strategy for the evaluation of this primary prevention plan and for follow-up with members of this population. A 28-item bibliography, a supplemental bibliography for each step, and worksheets are attached. (ABL)
