Challenges and Opportunities for Applied Psychology in Prevention and Promotion
Co-authored by membersof EFPA Board of Promotion and Prevention
Abstract - Across many domains of health and welfare, there have been remarkable advances in prevention where public-health models have had a significant impact. Psychology has much to offer in building on these successes and we describe some excellent examples, but in general, it has not been fully engaged with prevention science and implementation.
We set out some of the key challenges and opportunities for psychology and prevention science in contemporary practice, recognizing that often the rhetoric from governments to support prevention interventions do not match up to making the necessary resources available. We argue that psychology must prioritize this area of practice as there is evidence that the gains of recent decades may be under threat without concerted efforts.

These focus groups were an opportunity for the participants to share their perspective on how psychology is changing globally, how APA can help support their psychology career, and how associations can better impact the issues most important to psychologists. All participants have received a variety of APA online content and APA memorabilia as a thank you for their participation.
