Psychologist Edvardsen is a member of KIB –
Kompetansenettverket Kvalitet i Barnevern (The competence network Quality in Child Protection).

In connection with an interview of this group in the newspaper Dagbladet about, among other issues, a meeting between them and Solveig Horne, the Minister for Children and Equality at the time, we find the following:

"KIB-psykologene følte at statsråden virkelig lyttet til hva de hadde å si under møtet torsdag.    
    - Vi blir tatt på alvor og sett på som noe annet enn en rabulistisk aktivistorganisasjon for misfornøyde foreldre og forsvarere av det biologiske prinsipp, sier psykolog Kjell Olaf Edvardsen."
(The KIB psychologists felt that the Minister really listened to what they had to say during the meeting on Thursday.
    – We are taken seriously and are considered as something other than an agitational activist organisation for discontented parents and defenders of the biological principle, says psychologist Kjell Olaf Edvardsen.)

Ekspertnettverket KIB vil endre barnevernet
Møtte ekspertene som slår alarm om barnevernet: Horne er enig i kritikken
(The expert network KIB will change the CPS (Barnevernet)
Met the experts who sound the alarm about Barnevernet: Horne agrees with the criticism)
Dagbladet, 26 June 2017


Edvardsen's statement about parents and about the biological principle speaks for itself.

I have not heard of later opinions coming from him expressing any modification of his views.
