Module 6(c) – Neglect: The Graded Care Profile 2

Course Title :
Module 6(c) – Neglect: The Graded Care Profile 2
Course Code :
Description :

The Graded Care Profile 2 (GCP2) is a tool designed to provide an objective measure of the care of children. It is primarily based on the qualitative measure of the commitment shown by parents or carers in meeting their children's developmental needs. 

To use the GCP2 you will be required to carry out or work with partners to do 4-6 announced and unannounced visits to observe a family. This should be completed in a designated time of between 2-4 weeks. These visits do not need to be completed by the same person; a partnership aproach to observations is encouraged. 

Please discuss this requirement with your manager before booking training, as you will benefit most from using the tool as soon as you are trained, or supervising those who do.
