Exercise 6: Step 1

Towards more inclusive recording

Initial self-assessment question

How well do you think you avoid oppresive recording?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Not well

Very well

Working towards more inclusive recording means avoiding oppressive recording, which takes a number of forms, from the outrageous to the subtle; either way it is inexcusable and needs to be tackled, especially as family members now have considerable rights to see what you write - as we saw earlier in Exercise 3, if tested, there is very little that can be withheld when a person asks to see a file.

Again, we share our own ideas and thoughts in the practice examples; but we ask that you make notes of any points that you disagree with us about and then discuss them with your colleagues.
