Child Protection in Norway: Changing Ideologies
Torill Tjelflaat

A frame of reference from which to understand children and their families in a family policy perspective is developed along with examples of social benefits related to families.

The focus is on child protection in Norway, and the ideological basis for changes influencing the services for children in need. Key issues are:
(1) the shift from care to prevention, and,
(2) care and preventive strategies.
How is the child defined and understood in child protection work related to ideology, legislation, practice and research?
