From Naive Enthusiasm to Rational Constructivism in Prevention Programs

Denisa Vargová, Eva Mydlíková

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the paper is to demonstrate the importance of the application potential of research outputs for a more effective implementation of the program of prevention of violence against children on the example of two studies and one preventive program. THEORETICAL BASE: Primary prevention plays an important socio-economic and psychological social function in the development of a “healthy” child population, with an emphasis on its early implementation at the pre-school age. Its proper “commitment” is important for the child’s developing personality and social competences, therefore, the need for prevention programs for pre-schoolers and their inclusion in the school system is justified. METHODS: Content of the results of two studies is analyzed, as well as their application potential for use in preventive practice. OUTCOMES: In order to be effective, the prevention program must respect the specificities of the group of beneficiaries. Researchers and preventers, while adhering to certain principles of cooperation, can create an effective prevention program even in a sensitive area such as violence against children. SOCIAL WORK IMPLICATION: While respecting each other, researchers and preventers can develop very effective prevention programs for children from the age of 3 to adolescence, thus eliminating the social and individual consequences of violence towards children.
