'Working with Strengths' was published in May 2014 as a comprehensive resource for reviewing the literature and reflecting on strengths-based practice as applied to people in contact with services, as well as the strengths-focused development of practitioners, teams and organisations. It draws on the wider business literature as well as health and social care references to broaden the applicability of the ideas.

'Risk Decision-Making' was published in 2013 to help shift the focus from a tick-box culture to the realities of what good practice should be about. The manual and cd-rom provide the resources that should engage senior management in organisations, as well as the practitioners and multidisciplinary teams.

June 2007 saw the publication of the Working With Risk Trainers Manual and Practitioner Manual through Pavilion Publishing. The Trainers Manual provides a flexible two-day training programme, with the option of using any of the individual sessions as stand-alone training resources. The Practitioner Manual provides a set of practice-based risk tools with supporting guidance on how and when to use each. These materials also aim to discuss some of the wider risk issues and identify a key part of current research and literature. The practice-based tools are also supported by completed case examples.

Practice Based Evidence commenced business in October 2001. Promoting the value of the messages from service users, carers and practitioners experiences. These are often marginalised by the emphasis placed on research.

Also, thanks go to the Day 1 audience for their enthusiastic receiving of my keynote presentation on Good Practice in Risk Decision-Making incorporating the concept of Positive Risk-Takingthat I created back in 1994.

Risk Decision-Making

Positive Risk-Taking: From Rhetoric to Reality.

You've heard the words, but do you know with clarity what they mean? Do you confidently put it into practice?

I solve these questions.

Practitioners, teams and organisations frequently engage with bureaucratic solutions to the practical challenges of identifying and managing risks; but spend less time on the realities of making good risk decisions and taking risks appropriately.

I provide a variety of training resources and solutions to meet these challenges. Check out my free training webinar at:
