Prevention Practice Kit: Action Guides for Mental Health Professionals

Endorsed by the Prevention Section of Division 17 of the American Psychological Association

Authored and edited by leading experts in the field of prevention, this kit is a collection of eight brief practice books covering the span of preventive application, including: general overview of prevention, best practices, diversity and cultural relevance, psychoeducational groups, consultation, program development and evaluation, evidence-based prevention, and public policy.

The eight individual books address critical conceptual and/or practical areas within prevention. Each brief book, authored by experts in the relevant, individual area of prevention, conforms to a general outline prepared by the editors in order to promote a consistent reading experience.
