Building Family Competence: Primary and Secondary Prevention Strategies
The crisis state that personal and family problems seem to reach before professionals are consulted is unnecessary - the author of this volume argues that prevention is as much the key factor in family therapy as it is in other areas of health promotion. L'Abate develops long-term, theoretically-driven, comprehensive strategies to prevent and ameliorate family problems. He points to the growing importance of primary and secondary prevention as a method of meeting this need and proposes evaluation and enrichment activities as well as a hierarchy of professionals to be employed at specific levels of family competence.
