This searchable annotated bibliography includes summaries of more than 60 peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed articles and reports pertaining to the practice of family group decision making (FGDM) and other family engagement approaches in child welfare and beyond. Literature reviewed for this bibliography covers a wide variety of topics, from the origins and development of FGDM practice, to the involvement of children in conferences, to the use of FGDM in efforts to reduce racial disproportionality and disparities in child welfare. In contrast to our annotated bibliography on family engagement research and evaluative studies, this bibliography focuses on family engagement practice, policy and implementation literature. We hope this resource engages you in discussions on your own interests and practices in family engagement in child welfare decision making. This annotated bibliography is a living document and will be updated annually.
