The book emphasizes the significance of preventative actions and practices that may curtail the sources of negative stress at varying levels, equipping helping professionals with strategies and knowledge that can help them assist their clients. It describes culturally responsive approaches to actions and practices for healing and prevention and also underscores the importance of self-care and wellness.
