In recent years there has been a developing trend toward involving family in the processes of child protection decision making. In 1989, New Zealand introduced new children and young persons legislation that formalized this trend in the child care and protection area. While Family Group Conferences have been developed in New Zealand, the principles of family decision making in child protection work are of wide current interest and are increasingly utilized in practice developments internationally. The purpose of this book is to provide the first theoretical and practice analysis of using family group conference concepts within the child care and protection area. A distinguishing feature of the book is that it develops a model of family decision making, Effective Participatory Practice (EPP), that critically considers the family group conference process and the linking of models of empowerment, family participation, and partnerships in child protection.
