Promoting Health and Mental Health in Children, Youth, and Families. Springer Series on Behavior Therapy and Behavioral Medicine, Volume 27.
Glenwick, David S., Ed.; Jason, Leonard A., Ed.
In the last decade, there has been increased attention paid to the scope of mental and physical health problems that affect individuals at different points over the entire life span. This volume presents many problem areas and the range of their impact on individuals, families, and society at large. The impact of intervention programs is described to provide a current statement of advances and limitations within a given area. At the same time, the presentations provide an in-depth portrait of a specific prevention program so that the nature of the task, effort, and interventions themselves are more vivid. The 11 chapters are: (1) "Behavioral Approaches to Prevention in the Community: A Historical and Theoretical Overview" (David Glenwick and Leonard Jason); (2) "School-Based Interventions for Promoting Social Competence" (Jean Rhodes and Susan Englund); (3) "Prevention of Child Physical and Sexual Abuse" (Sandy Wurtele); (4) "Childhood Injury Prevention" (Lizette Peterson and others); (5) "Prevention of Substance Abuse" (Steven Kelder and Cheryl Perry); (6) "Preventing Teenage Pregnancy" (W. LaVome Robinson and others); (7) "Prevention of AIDS" (Jeffrey Kelly and Debra Murphy); (8) "Increasing Road Safety Behaviors" (E. Scott Geller); (9) "Media-Based Behavior Change Approaches to Prevention" (Richard Winett); (10) "Applications of Social Support to Preventive Interventions" (G. Anne Bogat and others); and (11) "Promoting Health through Community Development" (Stephen Fawcett and others). (EV)
