Abstract

The provision of support to families is an important part of a system that effectively supports children and young people who are involved in offending behaviours. However, there has been a recognition that in the past there has not been sufficient capacity or skills in the social work workforce to work confidently with families (Schinkel, 2013). In order to address this issue, the Scottish Government commissioned the Family Therapy Training Network (FTTN) to provide systemic family therapy training to practitioners working in the youth justice sector across Scotland. The Family Therapy Training Network is a multi-disciplinary professional network and members are the only Scottish based providers of accredited, post-graduate professional training in family therapy and systemic practice. In order to assess whether the programme was useful to practitioners, CYCJ was asked to help the Scottish Government and FTTN evaluate the programme.
