The traditional therapy-centered approach is an inadequate model to deal with the large numbers of children suffering from stress-related problems. Even if there were adequate numbers of trained therapists, only the most severe cases are generally offered a therapeutic intervention. Of those cases, many parents refuse or are hesitant to become involved in the mental health-care system. Managed care adds to the frustration of offering traditional mental health services. The high numbers of children under stress, coupled with the severity of the problems we have witnessed among children, were convincing arguments for a redirection of our energy into a primary prevention program.
