For many mental health professionals, assessments are the first interaction with a patient. It is a space for mutual understanding, and it sets the tone for a patient’s engagement with the mental health system. In this right, assessments become a complex process of gathering information, assessing an individual’s psychological needs and putting forth a comprehensive understanding of their needs. Given this complexity, it becomes imperative to not only develop an efficient skill set, but to also review it at regular intervals.
This webinar series presents the Assessment and Formulation framework that HNI follows and allows participants to have the space to think about, exchange ideas on, and understand the process of assessments and writing formulations.
