NASP at Thirty: A Vision for Children

pp. 221—224

A vision for NASP progress during the next, decade is presented couched within a vision for improving the quality of life for children. As the central support for that vision, a child advocacy position is recommended which would incorporate a core of consensus supported higher purposes for human development, a “positive ideology of the child.” Autonomy, self-actualization and social responsibility are proposed to be superordinate goals within that position. Targets for progress by NASP in child advocacy, child services and services to the profession during the next.decade are suggested which are logical expressions of these superordinate goals.
