Prevention is a critical component in the spectrum of interventions that also include traditional clinical treatments and rehabilitation. As reported in several meta-analyses, significant progress has been made in developing efficacious preventive interventions for a variety of problems. While there is the need for continued development of preventive interventions and for deepening our understanding of how they achieve their effects, increased attention is turning to the dissemination of effective prevention programs. We discuss that and related topics that have momentum to carry themselves into prevention's future.
