    Acknowledgments

    We thank Kim Bolen for her organizational and editorial work on the project and all the students at our two universities who have contributed over the decades to understanding and applying prevention, and Kassie Graves, our editor at SAGE, for her constant support and helpful guidance. Also, Andy and Kat give special thanks to Pamela Orpinas for her collegial contributions to our prevention efforts over the years. We all thank the Prevention Section members of the Society of Counseling Psychology in the American Psychological Association for their support and innovations. Most of all, our appreciation goes to the teachers, the administrators, the students, and the families, who have contributed so much to our understanding of the value and purpose of early prevention work.
