This paper presents primary and secondary prevention theories and strategies aimed at health promotion in the developmental age and describes prevention strategies based on the Attachment Theory by J. Bowlby and prevention programs developed in the school environment and addressing children’s and teens’ health promotion needs. A description of the Life Skills Based Education and of the Peer Education Prevention Model is provided, being both strategies described in the paper as privileged methodologies to promote health with children and teens. The theoretical contribution coming from the cognitive model and the role of the Cognitivistic Psychoterapist in the context of these prevention strategies is underlined, though a multidisciplinary and trans-theoretical approach is suggested as needed in this field.

Keywords: Prevention; Cognitivism; Attachment; Parenting; Life Skills; Peer Education.
