Dangerous dynamics: The impact of violence on practice

Updated: 14 May 2013

What's Important To Us

There are many dynamics impacting on safe social work practice. It’s important that we use supervision to manage the impact and, if necessary, seek additional support. In order to manage the emotional impact of the work we do we need to understand how exposure to violence affects practice. Violence can take many forms and its impact may vary. This information draws on the work of Tony Morrison, Chris Goddard, Janet Stanley and Robert Carew and though often directed at child protection staff it is important for everyone to be aware of.
