Overview

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, you will be invited to consider the role of formulation in your clinical practice while exploring this understanding from a variety of different theoretical perspectives.

We will draw upon your own experiences to develop a multidisciplinary understanding of formulation.

Who should attend?

This masterclass is aimed at clinical practitioners with experience of working within forensic institutions.

About the trainer

Dr Andrew Shepherd

Andrew is employed as a clinical lecturer in psychiatry at The University of Manchester.

His research and clinical interests focus on the lived experience of mental distress, particularly in relation to concepts of 'identity transition', for example during movements between prison, hospital and community settings.

His clinical practice is currently primarily in secure hospital and prison settings.

He employs a psychodynamic model of understanding in relation to concepts of diagnosis and formulation and has experience in the delivery of both individual and group therapies within forensic institutional settings.
