Abstract and Keywords

Abstract The importance of prevention and the future of prevention research and applications in the 21st century are explored in this chapter. Specifically, eight areas that promise to be important for the future growth and development of prevention science in the years ahead are reviewed. The eight areas are: evidence-supported prevention practices, prevention and neuroscience and genetics, prevention and technology, prevention and elder populations, education and training for prevention, economics of prevention, prevention in health care settings, and multidisciplinary and community partnerships. Each of these areas is reviewed emphasizing prevention psychology generally, and counseling psychology specifically. Examples are provided for roles for psychology, and the potential for prevention research and interventions. The chapter discusses the importance of psychologists collaborating with professionals from other disciplines to understand how advances in new knowledge will affect prevention science in the future, not only in the United States but also internationally.
