About the Book

Prevention from the Inside-Out offers a complete paradigm shift for the fields of prevention, human services, community work, social work, human resources, and education. It shows how our traditional outside-in approach has only brought us so far. This book is about what truly creates change. It is about how to unveil people's innate Health and wisdom to preclude problem behaviors such as violence, substance abuse, child abuse, delinquency, school problems, absenteeism, lack of motivation and productivity, and others. It reveals that for people to change such behaviors they must have new insight that changes the very way they see life and creates a shift within their consciousness. It helps people live in well-being and with reduced stress. It draws upon the spiritual. This book presents a solid case for working from the inside-out, the philosophy behind it, the research supporting it, how to apply it, and offers extensive interviews with people whose lives have changed through this approach and with practitioners of it. This is a must book for anyone who works in these fields.
