ISSN (printed): 1085-2352. ISSN (electronic): 1540-7330.
The Journal of Prevention & Intervention in the Community is on the cutting edge of social action and change, not only covering current thought and developments, but also defining future directions in the field. Since 1982, this highly acclaimed journal has been a key source of information for professionals interested in the field of community psychology. Under the editorship of Joseph R. Ferrari since 1995, Prevention in Human Services was retitled as the Journal of Prevention & Intervention in the Community to reflect its focus of providing professionals with information on the leading, effective programs for community intervention and prevention of problems.The Field of Prevention: Recent changes in the fields of health and human services indicate the significance of the prevention movement to the future: Raymond Fowler, PhD, President of the American Psychological Association, has predicted that psychologists' work will focus increasingly on prevention with emphasis on skill building and education for the problems of life; The National Mental Health Association has formed a coalition of national organizations to further prevention of mental and emotional disabilities and promotion of mental health; An increasing number of state mental health departments have developed plans to further prevention and are successfully implementing them. Interdisciplinary Appeal: Because of its intensive coverage of selected topics and the sheer length of each biannual issue, the Journal of Prevention & Intervention in the Community is the first--and in many cases, primary--source of information for mental health and human services development. This innovative journal is of interest not only to mental health and human services program administrators, clinical supervisors, planners, education specialists, and researchers, but also to health care and helping professionals in other fields where new methods of services delivery and new models of mental health practice can be achieved within the community.
