Crisis Intervention: Theory and Methodology

By Donna C. Aguilera | Go to book overview

POSTSCRIPTUM
Patients and mental health professionals in the next century can look forward to not only bright hopes but also many challenges and confrontations. No, I do not have a crystal ball. What I do have are some solid predications from impeccable sources—Harvard University and the World Health Organization.Richmond and Harper (1996) * state that the following needs for child and adolescent psychiatry will be priorities for the next generation of professionals. First, a commitment to equity is necessary so that all children and families have access to services. Second, a greater emphasis on health promotion and prevention is in order. Professional activities that apply knowledge are needed to influence not only healthcare policy but also social policy recommendations as well, since much of prevention and health promotion requires improving the environments of children and families. Third, an awareness of resource limits will be needed by those who seek to improve the lives of children. Fourth, research support must continue if interventions are to improve. Research is the engine of change.Professional organizations will have to reaffirm their social responsibilities by emphasizing priorities and social roles:
The maintenance of professional standards and ethics
Social conscience; individual strategies must become essential to preserve professional ethical standards
Advocacy for the whole child, for an integrated biopsychosocial approach, and for community interventions
Partnership in advocacy; alliances with groups that represent the public interest will make for more effective advocacy

Our Children Are Our Future

A 5-year study by an international team at Harvard University School of Public Health stated that the causes of death and disability will change dramatically by the year 2020 (Maugh, 1996 ). The study is called "The Global Burden of Disease" by the World Health Organization. When the study is completed, they are projecting ten volumes. The first two volumes of results compares the statistics of death in 1990 with the projected statistics of 2020.
