Beyond the Risk Paradigm

A risk paradigm has come to dominate many human services in the Western countries over thelast twenty years. This tends towards an increasing ‘logic of precaution’ in both policy andprofessional practice, with unintended negative consequences for those that usethe services, those that work in them and wider society. The aim of this series is tocritically engage with this paradigm in order to open up new and creative waysfor taking policy and practice forward. Each book in the serieswill investigate the nature, origins, development and evidence for theincreasing dominance of the paradigm in its particular field of practice.
