The Pursuit of Prevention

  • Bob Holman
Chapter

Abstract

This volume has attempted to trace the development of prevention in child care, to outline its progress and problems, to discuss how its meaning has expanded and to identify the present contribution of the statutory and voluntary sectors. The final chapter will contain two sections. One will restate the case for prevention while the other will consider a strategy to make it more effective.
