RODRIGUES, Luciana  and  HENNIGEN, Inês. In journalistic scene: incitement to the will family. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.2, pp. 465-483. ISSN 1808-4281.

This paper discusses media discourses about two strategies that operate guaranteeing the right to family and community life of children and adolescents: childcare services and adoption. Based on Foucault's theoretical and methodological references and on the field of journalism, we analyze a series and a television news programs in order to investigate how these strategies are visualized. We verified the production of truth that call up our look at the subject passing through the abandonment and loss of childhood services schemes, and we show how such a construction is articulated and contributes to incite a desire for family. We discuss the ways propositions of truth operates in media territory and its subjective effects, and bring into question what is enunciated in the light of Foucault's concept of governmentality.

Keywords : children; family; truth; journalism; subjectivity.
