NASCIMENTO, Maria Livia do; ARELLO, Maria Isabel Rosa da Silva  and  SANTIAGO, Gláucia Helena de Paula. Control logic and legal guidelines: the protection in the field of childhood and adolescence. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp. 936-947. ISSN 1808-4281.

The main goal of this research was to analyze the meaning of protection present in the regulatory documents of the public policy destined to children and youth. As theoretical and epistemological supports were applied history as a tool of analysis and the discussions about know/power relations, propositions worked by Michel Foucault, and the concept of analyzer status of institutional analysis in which events are taken as triggers that leads to questioning of instituted truths and stagnant beliefs. The meeting of those lines of thoughts with the official documents that have been studied, enabled the survey of four analyzers: the affirmation of family as being the ideal place for caring of children and teenagers (family analyzer), the logics of control and vigilance set in the contemporary (control analyzer), the psychological theories of development attached to the idea of prevention, risk and vulnerability of childhood (theories of development analyzer) and the power of the specialized speech (specialism analyzer). In this report will be featured the analyzer control. The logic present on the speeches of protection works through mechanisms of power based on notions of vulnerability, risk and dangerousness, creating the necessity of management and control of a specific share of population.

Keywords : practices of protection; production of subjectivity; control.
