Abstract

Developed a preventive health paradigm for health care psychologists by building on public health and preventive mental health models of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention. Adoption of a “biopsychosocial” perspective on health and illness is basic to the preventive health paradigm. Examples of preventive health programs are considered along with a wide range of preventive health activities by psychologists in health care settings.
