Formulation in Forensic Mental Health Practice

Formulation in Forensic Mental Health Practice

Clinical case formulation represents a means whereby specific areas of clinical need, or risk assessment, can be developed, understood and communicated effectively. It is identified as an essential practice model by many clinical disciplines. In this session participants will be invited to consider the role of formulation in their clinical practice, while exploring this understanding from a variety of different theoretical perspectives. The experience of participants will be drawn upon to allow a multi-disciplinary understanding of formulation to be developed.

Self-Harm in Secure Environments: Assessment, Formulation and Management

Self-Harm in Secure Environments: Assessment, Formulation and Management

This training workshop aims to develop understanding, knowledge and best practice for managing repetitive self-harm in secure environments.

The theoretical and practical aspects will be covered, and a psychological model of self-harm will be applied to an example of a typical case. The workshop will enable participants to understand how to approach the assessment and consider suitable interventions for the care and management of individuals. In addition, consideration will be given to the personal impact of managing self-harming behaviour in secure environments, including the importance of resilience.

Whilst the course focuses on prison and secure environments, the concepts are also relevant to similar settings, such as forensic mental health

The Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP)

The Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP)

Numerous instruments now exist to support the efforts of practitioners to predict the likelihood of sexual violence recidivism. Fewer instruments are available to support efforts to formulate and manage risk, and ultimately prevent sexual violence. This workshop will prepare participants to administer a structured professional judgement (SPJ) instruments designed for use with individuals who are at risk of being sexually harmful to others.

The Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP) is a more recent and comprehensive tool designed to assist practitioners in case management. It does not employ actuarial or statistical methods to support decision-making about risk, but instead offers guidelines for collecting relevant information and making structured decisions. This workshop will review the content and the administration of the RSVP, and provide an overview of the range of risk management strategies for sexually harmful behaviour.
