This paper (from 1999) details the project design for a family group conferencing program in Etobicoke (Ontario, Canada). The project involves a partnership of several organizations dedicated to children’s well being. Its aim is to enable families and family networks to develop and implement plans to ensure the emotional and physical safety and well being of children through increasing the creative use, integration, and mobilization of formal and informal resources using family group conferencing.
