Family Group Decision Making...

"The Family Group Decision Making process is a strengths based empowerment model designed to join the wider family group, including relatives, friends, community members, and others, to collectively make decisions to resolve an identified concern."

The process is made up of several different parts, the most important being the meeting itself which happens after extensive planning and preparation.

Family Group Decision making is becoming a well used resource to maintain family units and has increased in popularity over the last 10 years with many counties reporting "an innate power within families making decisions for themselves with the collaborative power of systemic partnerships"
