  9. FAMILY SUPPORT Jan. 26, 2011—Collaboration is at the heart of the government’s new military family support directive and is the key to supporting service members and their families in the months and years ahead, a Defense Department official said today. http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=62593

  10. Perceptions In Europe, years ago, castles and homes were built with a small enclosed room used for making bread. Today, after generations of making bread in these rooms, it is unnecessary to add yeast to the bread dough. The yeast culture simply lives in the air and leavens any dough that happens to be placed there. Source: Janet Vohs in Cognitive Coping, Families, and Disability. Baltimore, MD: Paul H. Brookes Publishing

  11. Perceptions When sailors and explorers thought the world was flat, they coped with that fact. That knowledge structured everything about how sailors thought and behaved. When word got out that the world was round, this news caused a shift in behavior and in people’s perceptions of what was possible. The world did not change, but what was thought to be true about it changed and people went about sailing their boats very differently based on the fact that the world was round. Source: Janet Vohs in Cognitive Coping, Families, and Disability. Baltimore, MD: Paul H. Brookes Publishing

  12. To what extent do you agree that collaboration is at the heart of support to military families in the months and years ahead • Strongly Disagree, collaboration is not the answer • Disagree, collaboration might help but is not the answer • Neutral, collaboration could help but I’m not sure • Agree, collaboration might help us make better use what is already available • Strongly Agree, collaboration across the military, the families and schools and the communities is critical

  13. To what extent have you experienced effectivecollaboration in your work or your services? • Never, I have not experienced an example of good collaboration • Rarely, I have experienced very few examples of good collaboration • Sometimes, once in a while I have experienced things coming together • Often, more often than not things come together for me • Always, I expect and experience good collaboration

  21. OUTREACH & PREVENTION “Definitions of Promotion and Prevention Interventions,” National Research Council and Institute of Medicine of the National Academics (2009). In: Preventing Mental, Emotional, and Behavioral Disorders Among Young People: Progress and Possibilities. Mental health promotion interventions (Definition): Usually targeted to the general public or a whole population. Interventions aim to enhance individuals’ ability to achieve developmentally appropriate tasks (competence) and a positive sense of self esteem, mastery, well-being, and social inclusion, and strengthen their ability to cope with adversity. Universal preventive interventions (Definition): Targeted to the general public or a whole population that has not been identified on the basis of individual risk. The intervention is desirable for everyone in that group. Universal interventions have advantages when their costs per individual are low, the intervention is effective and acceptable to the population, and there is a low risk from the intervention. Selective preventive interventions (Definition): Targeted to individuals or a population subgroup whose risk of developing mental disorders is significantly higher than average. The risk may be imminent or it may be a lifetime risk. Risk groups may be identified on the basis of biological, psychological, or social risk factors that are known to be associated with the onset of a mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder. Selective interventions are most appropriate if their cost is moderate and if the risk of negative effects is minimal or nonexistent. Indicated preventive interventions (Definition): Targeted to high-risk individuals who are identified as having minimal but detectable signs or symptoms foreshadowing mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder, or biological markers indicating predisposition for such a disorder, but who do not meet diagnostic levels at the current time. Indicated interventions might be reasonable even if intervention costs are high and even if the intervention entails some risk.
