Working with Troubled Families: a guide to evidence and good practice

Print Friendly

On 15 December, the head of the Government’s Troubled Families programme, Louise Casey, published a report which endorsed family intervention as the most effective way to turn problem families around and help them get on in life. 

 

Working with Troubled Families: a guide to evidence and good practice outlines key ways in which family intervention is shown to reduce involvement in anti-social behaviour and crime –  as well as truancy, exclusion and bad behaviour at school. It goes on to discuss the main features of effective family intervention.

 

The full report, which is based on academic evidence as well as consultation with both practitioners and families, can be downloaded here.
