Harmful Cultural Practice

Harm is the result of the exploitation, violence, abuse and neglect of children and can take many forms, including impacts on children's physical, emotional and behavioural development, their general health, their family and social relationships, their self-esteem, their educational attainment and their aspirations.

In some context, the term ‘significant harm’ is used within the protection system to determine the threshold of harm required before intervention by protection services can be undertaken. This approach seeks to balance the potential risk posed to the child facing the protection issue with the real risks that may come with the intervention itself.
