Opportunity descriptionThe 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.
