A Shared Family Assessment is a document that Family Solutions use when working with a family to help them identfy areas they wish to change. The views of all family members are reflected in the assessment in order to identify all the issues the family faces.
The Scaling Tool is then used to identify the areas a family wish to prioritise and the steps that can be made to improve each area. These areas will make up the Family/Intervention Plan.
