Therapeutic risk taking is a collaborative process in which people with mental health problems are supported to make decisions regarding safety and opportunities. Taking risks is an important part of the human experience and can promote growth, self-determination and self-confidence. Research on voluntary risk taking provides useful insights into the social and psychological benefits taking a risk can bring. The development of therapeutic risk taking has been influenced by a normative understanding of risk in society as the prevention of harm. Therapeutic risk taking recognises that risks can be about achieving gains to support people with mental health problems to work towards recovery. However, therapeutic risk taking may be limited as a means to challenge the impact of risk management approaches that promote restrictive practices.
