Abstract

This text sets the practice of health and welfare professionals within a broad context. It examines the alternative ways in which risk can be defined, the influence of risk on the development of social policy, its impact on welfare agency activities and on professional decision making. The book provides a perspective on the definition, assessment and management of risk. It explores how students learn about risk, how education providers equip future professionals to deal with risk issues in practice and whether employing agencies provide supportive or blaming structure.
