This chapter advocates for the creation of an integrated model that combines elements of risk and resilience, PYD, and interorganizational collaboration. The belief here is that together these three frameworks form an important summation of research and practice conducted in the past several decades aimed at preventing and treating childhood and adolescent problems. This chapter describes how a perspective that combines elements of these three approaches called the Integrated Prevention and Early Intervention Model (IPEI) can guide the design and implementation of community-based programs for at-risk children and youth. A case study of the Bridge Project After-School Program in Denver, Colorado is used to illustrate the utility of the IPEI framework.
