Sometimes we all have to take risks to get what we really want. Its a part of living a full life. Supporting individuals to take risks to do what they have chosen to do is part of a person centred way of working.

This is about asking the person, reading their file and speaking to others about the individual's background, and what their preferences, wishes and needs are.

This begins with a focus on who the person is, their gifts and skills. By offering a positive vision of success, the approach can enable people to manage risk.

A key obstacle to people achieving better lives has been the risk averse culture that has been prevalent in human services for a variety of reasons. Advocates of person centred thinking argue that applying person centred thinking tools to the risk decision making process, and finding strategies that are based on who the person is, can enable a more positive approach to risk that doesn't use risk as an excuse to trap people in boring and unproductive lives.
