Description

The most widely recognised approach to child abuse prevention is a model that draws together the concepts surrounding primary, secondary and tertiary intervention.

Primary prevention refers to stopping abuse before it starts by targeting members of the community through broad-based programs directed at populations of people.

Secondary prevention programs are aimed at early intervention in high risk, vulnerable groups.

Tertiary prevention targets those individuals, families or groups where abuse has occurred, and attempts to prevent its recurrence.
