family mediation

This resource was published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in 2012. The review date will be September 2014. SCIE’s report looks at research evidence about what works in mediation and family group conferencing.

This report has been produced under the auspices of the Scottish Child Care and Protection Network (SCCPN). SCCPN aims to increase access to and use of research evidence in practice. The review has been undertaken in response to practitioners who have requested more information on what makes for best practice in working with families where parental substance misuse is a factor. It has also been undertaken in response to a brief set out by the Scottish Government (2008) in The Road to Recovery, the most recent strategy on drugs.
