This booklet is designed to assist people in implementing strategies to prevent negative outcomes for children. The process starts with the individual, acknowledging an inside-out approach to change. The next component in the model is a set of research-based facts that promote resilience by focusing on strengths instead of deficits. What follows is a process that recognizes the importance of everyone's involvement. The continuing improvement component recognizes the need to plan systematically and to assess and improve on current efforts continually. The last component in the process is a focus on support, which includes training, technical assistance, and the resources needed to implement effective prevention strategies. Suggestions are given for each of these components. Contains 67 references. Appendixes contain a graphic to illustrate the process, a definition of the educational phases of the process continuum, and an example of a continuing improvement plan. (SLD)
