The purpose of this paper is to propose a recovery-focused approach to risk and safety and what this might look like in practice.
Review of recovery approaches and the ways in which traditional approaches to risk might hinder people in their recovery journey. Consideration of the principles of a recovery-focused approach to safety.
A recovery-focused approach to risk based on co-produced safety plans that enable people to do the things they value as safely as possible and shared responsibility for safety. Four key principles of a recovery-focused approach to promoting safety, autonomy and opportunity are proposed.
A recovery-focused approach to risk and safety is central to the development of recovery-focused practice within services. This paper outlines such an approach.
