Think The Unthinkable

A phrase that has been used in Children’s Serious Case Reviews where professionals did not think that serious harm could ever be inflicted on a child by their parents. Professionals sometimes need to think about the worst case scenario and that family members might be harming children / adults at risk.

For working with an adult at risk think about the negatives and the risks, within their environment, as well as the protective factors…have a balanced approach to thinking about what might be happening in terms of safeguarding and potential abuse.
