Neglect – AM
This will provide an introduction to the topic of child neglect, taking a lived experience approach of the family. The session aims to provide an interactive approach to understanding the complexity around neglect, this will include
- Understanding Neglect – neglect as the foundation stone for other forms of harm, neglect as a relationship-based phenomena rather than incident-led
- Developing the mindset – Lived experience of the child, child’s voice, observing and talking to children, what children mean within families
- How to help – Permissions to help and overcoming barriers
Graded Care Profile 2 – PM
This will provide practitioners with the knowledge and skills to be accredited for use of the graded care profile 2 (GCP2). The GCP2 is a practical tool which supports practitioners in measuring the quality of care delivered to an individual child from an individual carer or carers over a short window of time, and is designed to give a representative overview of the current level of care. The grades are based on observations and good quality evidence gathered during this window. The GCP2 reviews “what it’s like” for the child not “why it’s happening”. However, parental issues are taken into account during the analysis and planning stage. A judgement of whether parenting is neglectful or not is based on whether the needs of a child are adequately being met. The GCP2 helps professionals to be clear as to what the basic needs of a child are, and to what degree they are being met. This allows practitioners to make reasoned and explicit judgements in relation to neglect.
Please note – Practitioners may choose to attend just the neglect morning session, just the GCP2 afternoon session or the full day.
