There is generally a substantial gap between the ‘real world’ and the ‘ideal world’ when working with risk in mental health services. In this short course we address the challenge of real-world constraints that are inevitably imposed when we apply our learnings at the coal-face.

Working with Risk

Working with Values


Working with risk requires application of the known evidence to real-world challenges. However, this is only part of the task. All risk-related work is inherently value-laden. Mental health workers, clients, teams and services can vary substantially, in terms of which particular values are prioritised. In this short course we provide mental health workers with ways to enhance their awareness of competing and diverse values and outline methods for collaborative practice.

Working with Risk

the S.H.A.R.E. © Approach


Our work with ‘risk’ is embedded within a broader system. Effectively working with risk therefore involves engagement of other elements within that system. This includes (most crucially) the client but may often extend to a broader network of colleagues, other services, carers and support persons, and others. In this short course we outline a practical values-based model for engagement of stakeholders, with special emphasis on collaborative working with clients.

Risk decisions are part of a dynamic process. Reviewing outcomes, revising decisions and reflecting on the impacts of our work (on both workers and clients) is central to optimising the quality of this process. In this webinar, we outline the fundamentals of reviewing outcomes, reflecting on important learnings and revising practice moving forward, in the context of risk decision making.

“I really liked the practical aspect of doing what is right, not what we’re simply taught to do. Medical Practitioners often (in my opinion!) don’t receive the training in the area of complex mental health including BPD and this kind of seminar is really practically valuable… I can think of multiple patients where I will adjust some of the ways I’ll approach their care… I am optimistic this will help them as well as my anxiety and stress in my management.”
