HfCF Intervention Resources - Working with families
Intervention guide editor: Carol Jolliffe
This guide aims to promote resilience within the family despite potentially stressful and destabilising events. It supports practitioners to:-
- promote healthy family functioning by developing their skills in setting up family meetings and facilitating positive parent–child communications
- develop effective approaches to manage conflict and dysfunction in family life by learning to understand the origins of conflict arising within the family and between the family and agencies working with the family, and use solution-focused approaches to address conflict
- develop support networking for families, to identify and promote informal and formal sources of support.
