• Troubled Families Reading List

I’ve put together a very brief introductory reading list on ‘troubled families’. That’s about it really. If anyone has suggestions for other papers, please do let me know, via comments if possible so that others can also see them. It’s not intended to be an exhaustive list or a full literature review, just a list of some articles/books/reports which have been helpful to me in learning more about the Troubled Families Programme, where it came from and the model of ‘family intervention’ on which it is based. You can see the list by clicking on the image below.
