Case stories

Abuse in the home

Most often we are faced with cases where there is some level of historical abuse within the context of a family setting. The historical abuse may be something for which there is either a conviction or an allegation that has been the subject of a ‘finding of fact’ hearing in the courts.

The case of Stan is an example where, quite rightly, there are some concerns about the risk to particular children. The situation is compounded, though, by the way that society deals with abuse and the tremendous pressure put on authorities to make the ‘right’ decision.
