Prevention: Systems Intervention (PSI) - An Alternative Model for School Psychology
D.M. Wonderly, S.C. Jessie
A candid evaluation of the status of preventive mental health programming in 1975 cannot be particularly optimistic. There is little agreement on many of the elemental concepts (e.g., the nature of mental health), a lack of well-defined training models or successful intervention efforts, and a practically non-existent constituency. In spite of this, the obvious advantage of intelligent planning for the avoidance or reduction of adjustment problems provides compelling reason for continuing efforts to encourage and develop preventive approaches as the work of Schmuck, Gallessich, Lee and others attests.
