Systemic approaches and interventions in family counselling services - Protocol for an evidence and gap map
To identify relevant studies we will conduct a systematic literature search.
The mandate of the family counselling services in Norway is to prevent and remedy relational challenges within the family. Additionally, it works to strengthen good relations within the family, as well as improve children’s material and social conditions growing up. The family counselling services is a specialised service with family-related challenges as its specialty. It offers counselling and mediation when challenges, conflicts or crises are detected in the family.
The goal of this evidence gap map (EGM) is to map existing research on the effect of interventions and approaches that could be used within the Norwegian family counselling services, and on experiences with such interventions. An EGM is a systematic evidence synthesis product that displays the available evidence relevant to a broader research question.
To identify relevant studies we will conduct a systematic literature search. Titles and abstracts will be evaluated based on the the critera for incusion and exclusion. References will be evaluated by two researches independently by title and abstract, and subequently by fulltext for inclusion and exclusion. We will code the included studies in the digital tool EPPI Reviewer according to a predefined framework. The identified research will be presented in a report in Norwegian, and as an interactive EGM.
