SODRE, Francis. Social Work between prevention and health promotion: translation, attachment and reception. Serv. Soc. Soc. [online]. 2014, n.117, pp.69-83. ISSN 0101-6628.

This article is about the social workers´s work in primary attention in Vitória/ES. We are interested in thinking about the actions towards "promoting health" social workers undertake. We make a distinction between two approaches in public health: prevention of diseases and promotion of health. When related to promotion of health, the work is directed to the production of attachment and reception. "To promote" health is also a model of formal education, centered in classrooms in schools, and the professional is the one who "teaches" good practices, habits or behaviors.

Palabras clave : Social Work; Promotion of health; Public health.
