About the Author

Jan Storo is an Associate Professor of Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, Child Welfare Bachelor Program. He worked with young people and children in care from 1975 to 1999, mostly as a leader of residential units and was leader of The Norwegian Leaving Care Project (1999-2002) and the MST Treatment Unit of Oslo (2002-05). Storo is author of five books on the transition from care to adulthood and social pedagogy and a wide range of articles on topics connected to child welfare.


"This is a substantial book, albeit one with a very practical focus - it is for students and professionals who want to study and work with children and young people. It is a very accessible, one-volume account of the theory and practice of social pedagogy, and it will allow UK professionals to engage more fully in international dialogues about social pedagogy practice. Its publication is very timely and there is nothing else like it on the market at the moment." Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care
"A Solid Contribution." European Journal of Social Work
"In this book, the reader is presented with a realistic, practice-related picture of modern social pedagogy. Through pointing out the various possibilities and different paths to follow in working with children and families within this tradition, the author is at all times very clear about his own position and views." Trude Lokholm, Assistant Professor, University College of Harstad, Norway
