This course presents the theory and practice of developing educational models that make psychological information available to children, adolescents, and adults for the purpose of both prevention and intervention with adjustment, stress, and mental health problems. The understanding of normal lifespan development and sound mental health practice inform psychoeducational programs employed in clinics, schools, hospitals, and social service agencies. The appropriateness, effectiveness, and limitations of psychoeducational programs will be addressed.
