This paper describes an approach to supervision and consultation with practitioners who work therapeutically with individuals, couples, and families where domestic violence is of concern. The approach is rooted in an established and visible safety methodology, developed over the last 16 years in the Reading Safer Families project (Cooper and Vetere, 2005). We emphasise risk management, responsibility for behaviour, and co-operative practices as an integrated framework for safer therapeutic practices. The paper illustrates how supervision style and process are adapted to pay attention to safety from all perspectives in the family-professional network.
