The CARE-2 (Child & Adolescent Risk Evaluation) Assessment
Whether you're an educator, social worker, mental health professional, juvenile officer, or a concerned parent, you have the power to provide at-risk children and teenagers with the nurturing and support that will give them a second chance at life.
- You start by identifying the warning signs of violence using the most accurate violence prediction tool in the country.
- You continue by creating an intervention plan to provide the care and support that counteract risk factors and trauma.
- You guarantee success by executing the intervention plan and by following up.
Only One Assessment Gives You All Three!
Based on thirty years of forensic psychological research and a sample of over 1,000 at-risk youth collected from the East Coast and Mid-West, Dr. Seifert has authored the CARE-2 (Child & Adolescent Risk Evaluation) screening tool-one of the world's most accurate predictors of future violence in children. It is also the only assessment of its kind to provide custom case management and intervention tools, saving you the time and guesswork of having to create your own plan from scratch!
How CARE-2 Works
CARE-2 is a 57-item Assessment Form that measures risk factors associated with youth violence as well as protective factors. Areas covered include: youth characteristics, peer relationships, school and education issues, family dynamics, and protective factors. Clinicians can complete the assessment and score the form in 15 to 30 minutes. The scored assessment form is then used to complete the Case Management Planning Form. This form helps clinicians gauge the intensity of potential behavior problems and identify the appropriate level and types of interventions needed. CARE-2 is the only risk assessment tool to provide this added feature.
