What is it about?

The philosophy of the Family Circle Meeting is based on the presumption that in most cases it is actually the family who knows how best to help the child. In practice this means a shift in responsibility to the family, hereby creating the opportunity for them to participate constructively in solving the problem. It presents a new approach to problem-solving.
