Example text

He or she sees his partner and children as ‘possessions’. 2 BEGINNING THE ASSESSMENT The majority of child protection assessments are best and most appropriately conducted in the family home where the client and family feels most comfortable. In their own home they are more likely to be relaxed and feel more empowered by the process. It also allows the assessor some insight into family life, for example who visits or knocks on the door. During an assessment some years ago the issue of drug misuse and possible supply of drugs was an issue.

3 ASSESSMENT OF THE ABUSING ADULT The assessment of the abusing adult must address the overall risk posed to a specific child and often in respect of a specific child and family group. In order to achieve this the following information should be collected and understanding gained. It is necessary to: • understand the person’s background and evaluate how that has informed his or her behaviour • understand his or her current thinking, concepts and belief systems • understand the motivation to sexually abuse the child • understand the perpetrator’s cycle of abuse • understand the type of sexual abuse category the perpetrator falls into • evaluate his or her offending behaviour, specifically the sexual offences, and identify the level of risk posed to children • examine the person’s desire and capacity to change • explore the perpetrator’s relationship with his or her partner, if relevant and appropriate, to establish whether or not safe care systems can be put in place • identify possible interventions and services which may reduce the risk posed to the child and which may help reduce any risk posed by the perpetrator.

It enables the adult to engage with the child; it permits the child to feel positive about meeting and engaging with the adult. The child may not consciously connect the treat to the abuse or understand that it is connected. In the same way treats after abuse will not necessarily be seen by the child as buying silence. However, the promise of future treats may be understood to be dependent on the child’s silence and future availability. Reinforcement can be achieved by making the child believe they have been ‘paid’ for the sexual abuse and are therefore as guilty as the adult.
