PSY 620: Community Based Prevention & Intervention

Class Program

The development of strategies for prevention and intervention is examined from the perspective of the importance of such strategies along the full spectrum of social problems (e.g., AIDS, alcoholism, serious physical or mental illness, parental divorce, etc.). Additionally, theories and strategies which guide optimal development, specifically in the context of school, work and careers, are addressed. Potential roles of community psychologists in facilitating planned change (prevention or intervention) are explored.
