Abstract [en]

In this thesis, I examine drug prevention programs aimed at Swedish children in the 1970s, 1980s, and, 1990s. I view these programs as examples of methods for informing children about difficult problems and as methods for steering their behavior. These drug prevention programs show how the perception of what was effective communication with and effective steering of children changed during the end of the 1900s. The aims of these programs were always both to inform about drugs and to steer children’s behavior from drug use. But I show that these parts were not always of equal importance. During the 1970s it was considered important that the children’s behavior was an effect of their own decisions. Therefore, information and discussion was central in the drug prevention programs from that time. The children of the 1970s had to understand that drug users where victims and that drugs were dangerous. During the 1980s the information about drugs was complimented with discussions about morality and the solidarity of sobriety. It was considered important that the children of the 1980s knew that drugs where not only dangerous but that the drug users where morally wrong. During the 1990s the importance of information decreased further. The most important part of the drug prevention during the 1990s was the results. It was considered dangerous to give children to much information since that could awaken curiosity. As the century drew to a close it was considered more important that the children behaved correctly than that they where informed.
