Family Group Conference Research: Reflections and Ways Forward

Annie de Roo, Rob Jagtenberg

Research output: Book/Report/Inaugural speech/Farewell speechBookAcademic


In social care, moblizing netwoork support is a topical issue. Networks are at the heart of Family Group Conferencing, or Family Group Decision Making. FGC originated in New Zealand but has spread to many countries worldwide. In this book, FGC researchers, with different methodological orientations discuss their findings and reflect candidly on the methodological choices they made and the challenges faced. The 'what works' versus 'context' controversy in social work research is highlighted from different perspetives. Moreover, the interaction between FGC and the care system in which it is embedded, is illustrated through a variety of disciplines including governance studies, law, and economic analysis.
