  • Notes to the reader/speaker : The GAP Committee on Prevention welcomes your use of this presentation, “Prevention Psychiatry - What is it?” Uses for this presentation include instruction in a grand rounds format, a small group seminar, or in the teaching setting you find most useful. Speaking points for the audience are included in the Notes Page for each slide. Slides with detailed information generally contain definitions that promote a fuller understanding of the overall presentation. Those with less text offer an opportunity for you to have more flexibility in presentation of slide material and sharing of any knowledge you possess from your own studies. In the interest of collaborative work, we would appreciate any feedback you are willing to share with us. Our hope is that you will first review the information provided in order to continue your own learning process. Then, disseminate this information through instruction on the core concepts of prevention and how they results in more optimal mental health outcomes in individuals, groups, and the population at large. If you wish to download and use these slides for your own teaching purposes, please give credit to the GAP Committee on Prevention, and please retain the GAP logo. Speaking Points : The public health model seeks to maximize reach while minimizing cost. Since prevention and health promotion are just as important as treatment and aftercare, the field of Prevention Science suggests that prevention must be considered in everyday practice settings. As a named priority of the World Health Organization, effective prevention and promotion is critical for reducing the impact of mental disorders on all members of society. The information in the following slides provides a foundation for understanding just what prevention psychiatry is today.

    12. 12. Protective Factors <ul><li>Protective factors predate the associated disorder. </li></ul><ul><li>They reduce the risk of developing a disorder or adverse outcome. </li></ul><ul><li>Some are malleable, or subject to enhancement via a preventive intervention (i.e., promoting resiliency). </li></ul>
    13. 13. Examples of Protective Factors <ul><li>Support from caring adults </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Parents, relatives, mentors </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Good school performance </li></ul><ul><li>Conflict resolution skills </li></ul><ul><li>Positive role models and positive peers </li></ul><ul><li>Clear and consistent discipline in the family </li></ul>

    28. 28. Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry <ul><li>The Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry (GAP) was founded in 1946 by a group of physicians under the dynamic leadership of the late Dr. William C. Menninger. Their wartime experiences had brought them to realize the urgency of greater public awareness of the need for new programs in mental health for the people of the United States. </li></ul><ul><li>Over the ensuing years, GAP has had a tremendous influence in shaping psychiatric thinking, public programs, and clinical practice in mental health. It continues today to pioneer the exploration of issues and ideas on the frontiers of psychiatry and in applying psychiatric insights into the general medical, social, and interpersonal problems of our times. </li></ul><ul><li>GAP analyzes significant data in psychiatry and human relations, reevaluates old concepts, develops new ones, and applies this knowledge for the advancement of mental health. </li></ul>
