Over the last decade the family and family-centred policies have received increasing attention in policy for public service, culminating the emphatic instruction to "think family" individually, institutionally and collectively. This has occurred at a time when the sociology of the family has increasingly emphasises the difficulties of thinking family in a coherent way. We explore this agenda through an examination of the representational tools with which public service professionals and managers have been recently equipped. We conclude by questioning the adequacy of these tools for effectively representing family relations.
