Treatment and Prevention

  • Leighton C. Whitaker
Part of the Perspectives on Individual Differences book series (PIDF)


This chapter first addresses general considerations that are basic to any successful treatment approach and then discusses three major modes of treatment: psychotherapy; psychosocial approaches; and drug treatment. This ordering of the modes of treatment emphasizes the psychological and social approaches because they are the most currently underemphasized forms of treatment and are the most important to a favorable long-term outcome. This chapter concludes with a discussion of prevention.
