Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This literature review aims to draw together existing knowledge on assessing
and evaluating parenting interventions. In conducting the literature review, the
research team was interested in re-examining the historical policy context to locate the rationale for the introduction of Parenting Orders and the apparent under use of the provisions; to re-examine the evidence of risk and protective factors and the inter-related issues of antisocial behaviour and child care; alongside effective approaches to family service provision. These themes set the context and framework for examining the evidence on the practice of engagement with clients and the use of compulsion.
