Child Abuse Reporting Guide (CARG) is a tool that helps professionals decide on the need to report on possible abuse or neglect of a child or young person to the Child Protective Service in the Ministry of Social and Family Development. It is part of the Structured Decision Making® (SDM) system which includes other tools like the Sector Specific Screening Guide (SSSG) and Screening and Response Priority Tool (SRPT). These series of tools guide the reporting and screening process to ensure:
1) that children/young person and families requiring statutory child protection services are promptly reported, and
2) cases that do not require statutory services are provided with appropriate interventions and services
This course aims to introduce and equip participants with the knowledge and skills on how to apply the CARG when working with cases of abused or neglected children and young persons. Additionally, participants would learn how to use the decision outcomes from CARG and collaborate with SSSG reporters to develop appropriate intervention strategies for abused or neglected children and young persons.
By the end of the course, learners will be able to:
1) Describe the roles of a Child Abuse Reporting Guide (CARG) user;
2) Apply CARG effectively to support decision outcomes for child protection concerns;
3) Propose ways to manage Sector Specific Screening Guide (SSSG) reporter’s concern relating to disagreement on decision outcomes.
Target audience includes medical social workers, school counsellors, social workers, counsellors, police investigation officers and other professionals from health, education, social service and legal sectors who are required to administer CARG within their organisations.
