Family Group Conferences: Partnership in Practice.
Ryburn, Murray; Atherton, Celia
Adoption & Fostering, v20 n1 p16-23 Spr 1996
Describes New Zealand's Family Group Conference as a model for quality relationship between families and social work professionals. Examines adaptation of the model in the United Kingdom, noting how the model reasserts kinship as a valuable resource in all matters of care and protection, and establishes a clearer role for professionals as skilled facilitators rather than expert decision makers.
