Handbook of Preventive Interventions for Adults

A complete and current overview of preventive interventions and programs for adults

More than at any time in our history, people are living longer. Yet, in many cases, individuals are beset by emotional, physical, and social problems that can erode their quality of life. Whether the issue is obesity, anxiety, or partner violence, all of these problems share a common thread: they are preventable.

While prevention tactics are commonly associated with children and adolescents, prevention research and practice is equally critical in adulthood. And that's why, for mental health practitioners, researchers, and students, no reference is more valuable than the Handbook of Preventive Interventions for Adults.

Full of practical insights and evidence-based findings, this timely resource brings together preeminent scholars who summarize the empirical literature and provide useful guidelines for a variety of disorders. Each eye-opening chapter provides an introduction of the problem, along with related trends, incidence, risk factors, available interventions, and future research considerations.

Emphasizing a risk reduction model, which identifies risk factors and matches them to specific interventions, the Handbook of Preventive Interventions for Adults covers:

  • Emotional and mental problems, including anxiety, cognitive loss, suicide, unresolved grief, substance abuse
  • Health problems such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, and HIV/AIDS
  • Social problems including problem gambling, ineffective parenting, partner violence, elder abuse
  • And more

The Handbook of Preventive Interventions for Adults is a call to action for practitioners to embrace a prevention mindset—one that promotes the health of an aging population, while reducing the serious personal and societal costs linked to preventable health and wellness issues.
