Uit de praktijk blijkt dat dit op de lange termijn kindermishandeling en uit huis plaatsing kan voorkomen.Er zijn weinig beroepsgroepen waarbij emotie zo'n grote rol speelt als bij hulpverleners in de jeugdzorg en de kinderbescherming. Logisch; het gaat immers om kwetsbare kinderen die bedreigd worden in hun ontwikkeling, of erger. Daarom heeft ook iedereen een oordeel over het werk van deze hulpverleners. Zij liggen vaak onder vuur: omdat ze wél ingrijpen of omdat ze níet ingrijpen. Het gevolg is dat hulpverleners steeds vaker risicomijdend gedrag vertonen - het beruchte Savanna-effect - dat tot meer uithuisplaatsingen van kinderen leidt.De auteurs van Veilig opgroeien bieden een beter alternatief. Zij hebben in de praktijk vastgesteld dat samenwerking met het gezin de beste resultaten oplevert. In negen hoofdstukken worden zowel het theoretische kader als de praktijkelementen van symptoms of safeguard uitgebreid behandeld. Dit praktijkboek laat zien hoe je deze benadering steeds kunt toepassen: van consumption through onderzoek en beoordeling tot afsluiting van het dossier.
