This article presents the summary published in the Swedish version of the thesis" Family Centre Practice and Modernity: A qualitative study from Sweden". The thesis was presented at the Faculty of Health and Applied Social Sciences, John Moores University Liverpool 2010 (Lindskov 2010). It is a monograph with the overall aim to understand family centre practice through professionals’ and parents’ perceptions of a Swedish family centre and its relationship to modernity. The study employed a qualitative design and the research also drew on the approach of action research, where participants and researchers co-generate knowledge through collaborative communicative processes. Data was generated from semi-structured interviews conducted with professionals and individual parents. Dialogue sessions with the professionals of the study have been held in order that they and the researcher could enter into a dialogue based on the findings of the interviews. Data was consequently also generated from these meetings. One core finding of this thesis is that family centre practice for those involved contained a balancing act of different aspects of both simple and late modernity.
