Coohey, Carol; Marsh, Jeanne C.
Research on Social Work Practice, v5 n4 p524-38 Oct 1995
Presents a content analysis of prevention definitions in prevention literature. Examines the pros and cons of the traditional trilogy (primary, secondary, and tertiary) of prevention definitions, along with a description of key concepts, such as end-states, timing, targets, and eligibility criteria. Proposes a conceptual alternative to the prevention trilogy, in favor of one that distinguishes among prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. (Author)
