Abstract and Keywords

This book looks at the evidence of the effects of coercion on multiple psychological, behavioral, and health problems. It discusses these effects in the context of families, schools, communities, neighborhoods, and work sites. Then it provides the encouraging notion that treatment and prevention of coercion can exist within a public health framework. The chapter describes how public health principles can bolster existing knowledge about treatment and prevention to further expand efforts already in place to help reduce the prevalence of coercion. The chapter contains clearly defined steps to challenge researchers and policymakers to bring about the changes that can improve the emotional health of the nation as dramatically as the tobacco control movement affected smoking in this country.

Keywords: coercive process, public health, coercion, prevention, treatment
