- Publication year: 2021
- Author: Capacity Building Center for States
Illustrates what an integrated, comprehensive, prevention-focused approach looks like along a three-tiered prevention continuum. The publication defines primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention; identifies key partners who need to be actively involved in collaboration at each level; describes what it means to be aligned across prevention levels to offer seamless services; and features examples. Child welfare leaders and managers can use this to establish common understanding of the continuum among community partners, legislators, child welfare agency staff, caregivers, youth, and other stakeholders.
