Sample text

Risk assessment reports have the power to help ensure the safety of potential victims of sexual abuse who should be regarded as our primary concern. As authors of these reports we also have a responsibility towards the alleged perpetrator, as a forensic label can be branded indelibly upon someone for years, colouring and shaping attitudes towards them and compromising their access to normal aspects of everyday life. There is a particular risk of over documenting risk so that the label is tattooed upon the patient forever.

Who, after all, would wish to sign up to a process by which their freedom of movement will be restricted? There is at the heart of all risk assessments a paradox of the patient being encouraged to open himself up in 20 D I S A B L I N G P E RV E R S I O N S the service of a process that could be used “against” him (Van Velson, 2010). Perhaps the most powerful way of addressing this fraught area of benefits versus risk is to talk with the patient about the risk assessment representing their opportunity to tell their story for the first time.

Sometimes this involves family members, sometimes members of staff charged with supporting the patient within their residential setting. Thus we are working with a matrix that has echoes of the square triangular number in mathematics, where a number is both a triangular number and a perfect square.
