UM’s Dean of the School of Education, Dr. Prilleltensky, has taught in class that for the last century we have been told four lies about how to promote community well-being: that the medical system will promote health, that experts know best, that we must focus on pathology instead of people’s strengths, and that treating individuals one at a time will improve society. Prilleltensky proposes four remedies to these sins: Strength, Prevention, Empowerment, and Community Change.
