How to structure a Consultation

Listen to a read-aloud version of the text on this page
  1. Let everyone around the table introduce themselves, summarize what has happened, previous contact, and implemented measures from every agency. Make concerns known.

  2. Discuss freely: “What is best for the child/adolescent”?

  3. What can my agency do for the child/adolescent?

  4. Draw up a safety plan for different arenas (school, home, spare time)

  5. Divide responsibilities and tasks between the agencies

  6. The person in charge of the meeting is responsible for calling a follow-up meeting – within 3 weeks usually – to ensure everyone has done their part, and discuss the road ahead. It is important that guardians are involved in the multidisciplinary cooperative work.
