Risk Assessment for Family Harm in Relation to Covid 19

From Hall McMaster & Associates

A case management approach to Covid 19 for those managing abusive practice/family harm. The world has changed rapidly within a short period of time as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic. We can anticipate that in times of uncertainty, that where pre-existing issues exist within relationships such as family violence, that risk is likely to increase in the short term. This is due to a number of factors such as: financial concerns and worries, quarantine back to a single place such as the family home, unemployment/underemployment, and general feelings of unwellness for those infected. These contextual issues can put severe pressure on relationships. This therefore is a time to support those at risk in order to minimise harm to others. We have put this free resource together to support workers who are having to quickly adapt to a changing environment.
