 Prevention and Early Intervention Programs for Special Populations

Show Summary Details


Special populations have unique issues that need to be considered in the development and delivery of prevention and early intervention models. For these individuals, social context or stressors and support within their social environments may be particularly critical to consider in the wake of a traumatic exposure. In this chapter, we will discuss some of the environmental factors that are important to consider when planning and implementing prevention and early intervention programs for special populations and explore these factors in the case of refugee children.
