This volume reflects the current state of preventive psychology with contributions by those active in stress and mental ill-health prevention research and implementation. The essays report continuing international efforts and discuss the history of prevention and changes in thinking that have occurred over the years. Among the topics explored are the concept of the chronically mentally ill, stressful life event theory, stress in urban school children and the prevention of cardiovascular disease. The volume is designed to honour George Albee, a pioneer in preventive psychology.
