Source: (2005) American Humane FGDM Issues in Brief

The conclusions of this Swedish study appear inconsistent with the majority of international research and evaluation on family group decision making (FGDM) and, therefore, it has generated significant discussion. The purpose of this Issue Brief is to summarize the Swedish study, present a wider understanding of it and its place within FGC policy and practice, and place its conclusions within the context of instituting FGC in national and international child welfare systems. The study’s findings, an analysis, and questions follow. (excerpt)
