Family Group Decision Making

Family Group Decision Making (FGDM) is a voluntary process recognizing the family is the best judge of how to meet its members’ needs.

FGDM offers families the opportunity to join together with individuals who they identify as being important in their lives, and have the goal of developing a plan to resolve identified concerns.

In FGDM, the family group might include extended family, trusted friends, teachers, counselors, service providers, clergy, or anyone else the family wishes to invite.

All families who choose to enter into FGDM are guided by a Coordinator, who will ensure that everyone involved is prepared and understands the guidelines to be successful.

The process of FGDM begins with a referral from a social worker, teacher, counselor, case-manager, family member, or self referral.
