This manual is the product of a collaboration between Gladsaxe municipality and the Institute for Social Work, at University College Copenhagen. The aim of the project, which was entitled ‘Focus on Inclusion and Outcomes using FIT in Children’s Services’, was to improve the quality of interventions when children and their families come into contact with statutory children’s services in Gladsaxe municipality, which lies North of Copenhagen in Denmark.
More specifically, the aim was to develop Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) for use in statutory children’s services with at-risk children for all Danish municipalities. Gladsaxe Municipality, which had had a positive experience with FIT in its family counselling services, paved the way, testing the approach, while staff from University College Copenhagen developed the manual and gathered the underlying empirical data. This development process took two years and in-volved interviews, extensive field work, and the production of short films featuring staff from Gladsaxe municipality and their children, showing the approach. The films which supplement the manual illustrate how to enhance the quality of work within children’s services using the approach.
