Abstract: This research aims to achieve a better understanding of factors that influence the assessments and decisions of profes- sionals and students about the possibility to remove a child at risk from her birth family. The study also analyzes the influ- ence of the attitudes of the child’s mother on that decision. It was used a questionnaire based on a case vignette of alleged child maltreatment. Compared with students, professionals were more pro-removal, more in favor of reunification and parents’ participation in the decisions, and had a higher assessment of emotional abuse, and emotional and physical neglect. Mother’s wish did not show to have any impact in the two samples regarding maltreatment, risk assessments, and intervention recommendations.
