Mike Titterton offers an innovative model of risk work, arguing that a thoughtful risk taking approach in health and social care can lead to empowerment and greater independence for vulnerable individuals. He explores contemporary definitions and theories of risk, examining the dilemmas frequently faced by professionals working with older people, the homeless, people with physical or learning disabilities or mental illness, and proposes a systematic framework for risk assessment and management. He discusses a variety of approaches to risk, and identifies the essential skills needed by professionals, with an emphasis on developing creative approaches to practice. The book offers a wide range of case studies and examples of good practice, and provides a clear overview of the legislative framework.
