Family group conferences in social work : Involving families in social care decision making Paperback / softback

Edited by Deanna Edwards, Kate Parkinson

Description

Family group conferences (FGCs) are a strengths-based approach to social work practice, empowering families to take responsibility for decision-making.

It is a cost-effective service, which is currently used by the majority of local authorities. This collection discusses the origins and theoretical underpinnings of family led decision making and brings together the current research on the efficacy and limitations of FGCs into a single text. This insightful book also covers topics such as the use of FGCs in different areas of children and families social work, uses case studies to illustrate current practice, and explores whether FGCs should become a mainstream function of children and families social work.
