This chapter focuses on prevention to avert parent-child contact problems from becoming more severe. A number of prevention approaches, strategies, and programs have been developed to address different levels of severity of parent-child contact problems. These are generally separated into three different categories of prevention, each with their unique focus and target groups: primary prevention focuses on the entire population who may be at risk of parent-child contact problems after separation; secondary prevention targets children and parents who have been identified at greater risk of becoming involved in alienation; and tertiary prevention targets children and families involved in more severe levels of parental alienating behaviors.

Keywords:   parent-child contact problems, secondary prevention, primary prevention, tertiary prevention
