A Critical Analysis of Prevention Science Framework: An Examination of Student Discipline Programs

Abstract

Intervention programs have been mostly the focus of many organizations in facilitating behavioral improvements. Given that mostly one of the goals of the academe is the formation of particular universal values we collectively affirm, this paper zooms into the existing programs that aim to address, on the prevention side, student discipline issues in the university. The purpose of this study is to look at prevention science, a thought system prevailing in the wider research arena, if it can be adopted to the specific setting. This paper presents a critical analysis of prevention science framework as used in proponent studies in psychology, clinical research and politics. Findings show that a prevention science research should consider risk and protective factors, developmental theory and processes, ecological analysis, good research practices and programmatic intervention research. These framework elements were used to examine the existing programs designed for the prevention of student discipline violations in a university. Gaps in the existing prevention programs as advocated by the framework, as well as the implications for student discipline program development, implementation and evaluation, are also discussed.
