Overview

The thrust of this book is to educate policymakers, academics, political scientists, and others as to the beneficial use of psychological principles within a multidisciplinary framework to aid in the development of more productive policy. Contributors to this volume offer an integrative, collaborative, synergistic approach to effecting positive change. The book's goal is threefold: to offer a varied collection of solutions and models of applications of psychological principles; to collect a diverse group of experts (academics, theorists, and practitioners) whose expertise spans some of the top managed care firms, institutions of higher learning, national consultants, schools, and health care facilities; and to integrate this collection of pragmatic theorists into one volume with a general, but common focus - improving society.
