This on-demand professional training program on Forensic Case Formulation and Treatment Planning is presented by Michele Galietta, PhD.

This program focuses on teaching participants to utilize risk assessment data in formulations to inform the management and treatment of forensic clients. The program includes theoretical information about the process of case formulation and its utility. Current practices and the empirical basis for their use are highlighted along with controversies about the relevance of particular types of data in formulations. The program describes both nomothetic and idiographic aspects of formulations. Although there are multiple variations in theoretical approaches to formulations and treatment plans, this program focuses specifically on using SPJ risk data and a behavioral and cognitive-behavioral framework to inform forensic case formulations in order to develop evidence-based treatment plans targeting the most salient treatment targets.
