"AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION..."
HASELKORN, FLORENCE
PREVENTION AS FUNCTION, VALUE ISSUE, CONCEPTUAL SHORTCOMING, AND PRACTICE IS DISCUSSED AND RELATED TO EDUCATIONAL TASK. PREVENTION AS FUNCTION IS GENERATED BY OUR VALUE PREMISES. IN SEEKING TO PREVENT SOME FORMS OF SOCIAL DYSFUNCTION, WE MAY BE PERPETUATING OTHERS. THE CONCEPT OF PREVENTION IS AMBIGUOUS. CRUCIAL CONCEPTUAL ISSUES INCLUDE THE APPLICABILITY OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH MODEL, THE QUESTION OF SOCIAL PROBLEM CAUSATION, THE EPIDEMIOLOGICAL METHOD, AND QUESTIONS OF APPROPRIATE TARGETS FOR PREVENTION. MORE RECENT PREVENTATIVE PRACTICE DEVELOPMENTS AND THE PROBLEMS THEY POSE ARE DISCUSSED. CURRICULUM CONTENT IS IDENTIFIED, AS ARE OTHER MATERIALS RELEVANT TO PREVENTION WHICH MIGHT BEAR INCLUSION IN THE CURRICULA. THE THREE MAJOR SCHOOLS OF EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHIC THOUGHT AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS ARE DISCUSSED. EDUCATORS ARE URGED TO SUBJECT PREVENTION TO IN-DEPTH EXAMINATION. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE COUNCIL ON SOCIAL WORK EDUCATION, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, JANUARY 26, 1967. (PS)
