4.1 Explain how the likelihood of abuse may be reduced by
Working with person centred thinking
Encourage active participation
Prompting choice and rights

- Promoting choice and rights. is all the above that says in working with person centred values life even if this is in a small way by deciding what they want for breakfast that morning. we all make our own decisions in our own homes so why not in a residential home by including a resident in their care it allows them to still be an individual to have rights + wishes recognised
