Hodges' model - draft paper on case formulation informed by Rainforth and Laurenson (2014)

The following is from a literature review by Rainforth, M., & Laurenson, M. (2014) for a draft paper on Hodges' model and case formulation [CF]. They do not refer to diagrams, but two models are included and the role of modelling. The paper is supportive for Hodges' model within mental health, forensic care and supervision more generally.

Crowe et al. (2008) suggest an advantage of CF is its ability to create understanding of service user needs regardless of their diagnostic classification. Thus an emphasis on the link between training provision, training outcomes and treatment plans is needed so practitioners understand the frameworks for conceptualizing mental distress whilst also being able to recognize the expertise of the service user in CF development.
A goal of the person-specific evaluation of CF is the development of an intra-individual statistical prediction model for actuarial prediction tailored to the specific issues and life circumstances. The essence of CF is its ability to provide shared understanding of a person’s presenting problems through theoretical explanation of assumed causes and maintaining factors, so appropriate interventions can be utilized (p.208).
