    Abstract

    Social workers will experience cooperation and resistance in a variety of forms to engagement and intervention in statutory child protection. While families report on positive partnership work with social workers that promotes change, others actively resist any intervention, some also however, use a hidden, potentially fatal form of resistance ‘disguised compliance’ as in the case of Peter Connelly (2007) (Appendix 3). Understanding the possible causes and deciding on the most appropriate response is crucial to safer outcomes for the children within a family.
