This report documents the speeches and recommendations made at the conference on Health Promotion and Health Education in Early Childhood. An introduction, which discusses the purpose of the conference, is followed by a speech entitled, "Community and Professional Responsibility for Health Promotion in Early Childhood." This speech focuses on a system for preventive services for young children and community intervention. "A Systems View of Intervention and Its Implications for Promoting the Health of Young Children" defines the systems view and than goes on to relate it to the health of young children. The next speech is entitled "An Ecological Approach to Promoting Dental Health in Young Children.""The Psychosocial Basis for Health Education of Young Children" touches upon three areas: systemic models, a gap between psychosocial concepts and the area of general health behavior, and a theoretical paradigm known as the health belief model. This is followed by "Building Community Programs to Promote Child Health Through Multidisciplinary Teams." The final speech predicts what the current directions in educational programs for young children will be like. A summary by the conference chairman is included followed by recommendations obtained at the conference regarding health education. (SK)
