Applying Mental Health Behavioral Change to Ethnonational Conflict Resolution

  • Maurice Apprey


This chapter takes the position that clinical practitioners who carry out interventions under the rubric of Health Behavioral Change Imperative need a wide range of clinical skills. Although this approach to behavioral change takes the community as a primary target rather than the individual for change, it is inevitable that clinical practitioners would at various times meet situations that require them to have skills for intervention with individuals, families, youth groups, gangs, and teenage pregnancy groups, among other target populations.
