Tucker and Grimley (public health, U. of Alabama at Birmingham) detail how psychologists can integrate public health tools into their practice to maintain and motivate behavior change and better meet demands for effective and cost-effective therapeutic and preventive care for those who do not usually seek it. They present evidence-based intervention approaches that supplement psychotherapy tools, how they work and for what populations, and how clinical treatment fits. Methods include market segmentation, identifying teachable moments, delivering motivationally congruent messages to risk groups, screening and brief interventions, communications and computer technologies, and low technology interventions that use print materials, DVDs, videos, and other materials.
