Disguised Compliance.

The term used to describe when the service user or family members gives the appearance of co-operating with agencies to avoid raising suspicions, to allay professional concerns and ultimately diffuse professional intervention. They may; tell professionals what they ‘want to hear’, not admit that they do not want to change or say that they have completed requests when they have not done so. Practitioners need to be aware of possible disguised compliance from service users and families and to always check out what is being said.
