Opportunity description

The process of ‘formulation’ brings together a practitioner’s theoretical knowledge and clinical experience around child behavioural health, and their client’s expertise about their own life, relationships and circumstances. Sometimes known as ‘case formulation’ or ‘case conceptualisation’, it is increasingly being used to understand the complexity faced by children and families.

This course emphasises the importance of incorporating children’s participation into your existing case formulation practices. It describes four practice strategies for facilitating children’s involvement in formulation processes:
- Understanding children’s perspectives on presenting problems.
- Uncovering children’s agency in context.
- Exploring obstacles to the child’s best life.
- Collaboratively documenting case formulations.

These strategies can help you to work in ways that are collaborative and affirming of children’s strengths, skills, know-how and values, especially when it comes to navigating the difficult circumstances they are facing.

Eligibility criteria

This course is designed for practitioners who work with children and who draw on case formulation processes to inform their practice around child behavioural health. This includes accredited mental health professionals, such as psychiatrists, psychologists, paediatricians, mental health social workers, mental health nurses, mental health speech therapists and mental health occupational therapists.
