One of these, the Lela Rowland Prevention Award (1982) was from the National Mental Health Association. Three were from the American Psychological Association: the Division of Community Psychologyís Distinguished Contribution Award (1984), the Task Force on Promotion, Prevention, and Intervention Alternatives in Psychology (1986), and the Division of Clinical Psychology, Child Clinical Section (1993). ICPS has also been recognized by the 1999 Presidentís Report on School Safety, by the Center for the Study of Prevention and Violence, by the Expert Panel, Safe, Disciplined, and Drug Free Schools, US Department of Education (2001), the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, 2001, in 2002 by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning {CASEL}, and again in 2012, and in 2006 and in 2012 by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention {OJJDP}.
