In this presentation Linn will tell us about the work of Lena and Victoria of Molndal Children’s Services where the safety planning work was done rigorously in a case involving violence, drug use and neglect.

We will also hear from the mother telling us about her experience of the work in what had become a stuck case for both her and the professionals.

In addition to describing the detail of the practice, Linn will speak about how the professionals organised themselves so they could lead the family in this work.
