Dispute Resolution Processes

Family Group Conference

Family Group Conference is a meeting between members of a family and members of their extended kinship group. At this meeting, the family becomes involved in making a plan to stop the abuse or other ill-treatment between its members. Family Group Conferencing involves family and friends in resolving the abuse rather than leaving the decision-making entirely in the hands of the legal authorities and service providers.  All participants are given a great deal of preparation, support and protection so that all family members can be both safe and informed in having a say in the decision-making.
