Abstract

We aim to evaluate and critically assess the process and outcomes relating to the transfer of systemic practice from clinical environments into family homes. The emphasis will be on practice possibilities presented both for service users of and for practitioners in a multidisciplinary, integrated service for young people on the edge of care. We are accepting the practice and policy challenge to ‘think family’ and deliver our services at the ‘right place, right time’. In so doing we have had to reflect and rethink our position on outreach work and established modalities of practice particularly in relation to integrated work. In developing our collaborative approach both for workers and with families we have found that the working relationship is strengthened and engagement promoted by home based working and to facilitate the achievement of positive outcomes. We have been informed by social constructionist ideas and ‘free talking’ methods, using video as a key tool to promote both engagement and analysis. This will aid dissemination of our key learning points of the opportunities afforded by integrated working to shift practice modalities and develop a reflective space for practitioners.
