What is Risk Benefit

Risk Benefit Approach. 

 

For a long time organisations and institutions have been working on a Risk Adverse basis, but this has a serious impact for childhood, learning and developing. It is now recognised that children must be exposed to risk in a way which enables natural problem solving, developing awareness and abilities to keep themselves safe but also to be adventurous and willing to try new experiences. We now use Risk Benefit where potential benefits and harm are weighed up to consider a more effective and appropriate approach towards experiences – both common and unusual.
