    Research substantiates children of parents with mental disorders including substance abuse face increased risk for emotional and behavioral problems.

  • Undervisning om kriser og katastrofer. Et pedagogisk mulighetsrom? 

    Strandbu, Astrid; Schultz, Jon-Håkon (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-08-28)

  • Innlandsadopsjon blir automatisk problematisk når biologien gis forrang. (Debattinnlegg) 

    Skoglund, Jeanette (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2022-02-20)
    Silje Førsund vil at vi får øynene opp for innenlandsadopsjon (Morgenbladet 10.02.22). Vi kan være enige i at det sannsynligvis er liten allmen bevissthet om innenlandsadopsjon i Norge sammenlignet med utenlandsadopsjon. Noen vil nok også si seg enige med Førsund i at «det er på høy tid at også stemmene til innenlandsadopterte i Norge blir hørt». Det er imidlertid flere forhold ved hennes innlegg ...
  • Transition to Primary School of Children in Economic Disadvantage: Does a Preschool Teacher Training Program Make a Difference? 

    Seabra-Santos, Maria; Major, Sofia; Patras, Joshua; Pereira, Marcelino; Pimentel, Mariana; Baptista, Elsa; Cruz, Francisca; Santos, Mariana; Homem, Tatiana; Azevedo, Andreia Fernandes; Gaspar, Maria Filomena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-07-30)
    Transition to school may be experienced as a critical event for both children and their families. Within an ecological framework of transition, the scope of the concept of school readiness in recent years has decentered from the child to the environment, including the readiness of (pre)school education to develop core skills in children. This study aims to understand the extent to which preschool ...
  • Problemer med foreldresamvær i barnevernet- unge voksnes fortellinger 

    Skoglund, Jeanette; Thørnblad, Renee (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-14)
    De fleste som vokser opp i fosterhjem, har kontakt med foreldre, og det iverksettes betydelige ressurser for å gjennomføre foreldresamvær. Dette er i tråd med samværsretten og bygger på kulturelle verdier der relasjonen mellom barn og biologiske foreldre har avgjørende betydning. Forskningslitteraturen kan hevdes å bekrefte viktigheten av foreldresamvær, men viser også at det kan være problematisk. ...

  • Måleegenskaper ved den norske versjonen av Olweus spørreskjema om mobbing (Olweusundersøkelsen) 

    Solberg, Mona Elin; Martinussen, Monica (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021)
    Olweus spørreskjema om mobbing for elever ble utviklet på 1980-tallet og brukes til å kartlegge mobbing i skolen basert på elevers selvrapportering. I Norge brukes skjemaet først og fremst i grunnskolen på 4. til 10. trinn.

  • The psychometric properties and norm data of the Norwegian military personality inventory (NMPI) 

    Nordmo, Morten; Skoglund, Tom Hilding; Lang-Ree, Ole Christian; Austad, Sara Kasia; Martinussen, Monica (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-16)
    The five-factor structure is a well-established model for personality. The five traits covary with job-performance and work-relevant outcomes. The practical administration of existing big-five measurement scales is, however, somewhat limited, in a Norwegian setting, as existing scales are impractically large or have unknown psychometric properties. Because of this, a new brief Norwegian personality ...

    Great advances in molecular biology, genetics and imaging serve to enhance the desire to develop multi-level and multi-scale models for "personalized medicine" but they remain very challenging for high prevalence, high impact childhood onset neuropsychiatric disorders. We currently have the capacity to develop innovative, effective and efficient clinical decision support models, while also creating ...

Artikkelen bygger på en tidligere beskrivelse av det samme tiltaket i Ungsinn (Bjørknes, 2011; Bjørknes & Koposov, 2018). Tiltakseier har oppdatert programmet noe siden da og denne artikkelen tar utgangspunkt i den oppdaterte versjonen med et ...
