Assessing Protectiveness using CASP-R Model of Supervision and Protection

The CASP-R is a structured and dynamic professional judgment tool designed to assist practitioners from a range of disciplines (social workers, psychologists, family centre workers, risk assessors) in providing an informed and defensible opinion on a proposed carer’s capacity and ability to supervise individuals about whom concerns have been raised in relation to sexual and domestic violence

‘Clearly written and underpinned by the latest thinking and research in relation to sexual offending, child protection, domestic violence and multi-disciplinary working, this Framework is an essential and ground-breaking piece of work.’
Professor John Devaney, University of Edinburgh
