|Abstract||The prevalence of child abuse and neglect is an international concern that justifies the existence of child protection systems. An important first principle for all such statutory child protection systems is to ensure that the system itself does no further harm. It can be argued that there are specific circumstances within which well-meaning services have the potential to do harm: specifically, processes and actions that disempower parents by reducing their autonomy and capacity for positive action. Exploring the circumstances in which reduced parental autonomy impacts negatively on families is an important first step in developing procedures for working with families that not only avoid harm but are orientated to produce meaningful change. Two evidence-based programs are described that together have the potential to assist child protection practitioners to develop a collaborative helping partnership with families, clarify goals for change and support parents to achieve meaningful improvement in their family functioning. The programs described are both manualised and have empirical support for their effectiveness. The potential benefits for both families and practitioners working within child protection agencies in the two programs are described.|
