‘ Results from the Academic Workplace Forensic Care for Youth: collaboration of research, practice and education to improve care’
Chair: Eva Mulder, programmaleider AWRJ
Method: Youth (N=164) and parents (N=57) filled out questionnaires about family environment, parenting stress, and treatment motivation. Additionally, we interviewed 20 caregivers about current involvement, needs and expectations in involvement, and motivating strategies.
Results: We will discuss characteristic of parents and their involvement. The majority of parents and adolescents are at least somewhat motivated for family meetings, even though they reported low on family-problems. All caregivers want to be involved, albeit in different intensity and frequency.
Conclusion: Caregivers agree that family-oriented care is important in JJIs. Practitioners face the challenge of tailoring family activities to parent’s needs. Implementing FC was the first step towards successful parental involvement.
