Primary Care Counselling
Following an overview of United States prevention history and a description of how to operationalize George Albee's incidence formula, contributors then focus on: programmes that increase parent-child interaction and parenting ability; preschool programmes, such as those which use parents as teachers, others which centre on quality child care, and programmes which develop problem-solving abilities in early childhood; and school-age programmes ranging from interventions in school settings to developing social competency and job readiness. Finally, contributors examine prevention interventions aimed specifically at unemployment and depression in adulthood.
