dc.description.abstractCare arrangements for children growing up in families with multiple problems need to be of high quality to ensure child safety and well-being. Services like these rely, in turn, on high quality research to provide meaningful guidance for practitioners in their complex decision-making processes. Conducting research in families with multiple problems, however, can be considered particularly challenging, which is not surprising if one considers that they are also known in social work practice as one of the hardest target groups to reach. The problems these families face are often severe and complex and sustained problem solving often involves various family members, social network partners and professionals. The goal of our symposium, therefore, is to do justice to both: (1) the distinctiveness and complexities of providing family based services in multi problem situations, and (2) the methodological rigor needed to provide scientifically sound evidence on problem specifics, as well as, on possible benefits and the harm of the interventions offered. The symposium will be open to discussions that involve all attendees, held in the form of a dialogue that explores boundaries and possibilities of different research approaches, mainly focusing on quantitative methods, though being open for inputs on qualitative research perspectives as well. Topics such as: (a) target group characteristics, (b) control group designs (in randomized trial settings or not), (c) regression to the mean, and (d) missing values will be addressed. Moreover, if possible, topics submitted by the attendees beforehand will also be addressed.de_CH
