When interventions are seen within an ecological and eclectic context attention is directed to recognize the strengths, resources, and adaptability of people. This framework also focuses on the interaction between the needs and resources of the person and the demands and resources in the environment. The right effort is not direct to one intervention but to a range of interventions. Points of intervention can be organized on dimensions of level and timing: timing of interventions may include tertiary, secondary, primary prevention as applied to the continuum of disaster stages or phases. The level of interventions may be directed to an individual professional and their family members; to their team or department; or to larger systems such as the organizations or systems such as public policy or workplace health. The chapter reviews principles of intervention that focus on resiliency, community building, evidence of efficacy, cultural sensitivity, and sustainability. It then focuses on preventative approaches and setting the stage for intervention.

Keywords:   prevention, stages of change, community building, resilience, cultural sensitivity, sustainability, public policy, workplace health
