Introduction to I-Fast and Follow up Clinical Supervision for caseworkers

Trainer︰Ms. Constance Yeung


​Equip caseworkers with the basic knowledge and application of I-FAST (Integrative family and systems treatment) in casework assessment and intervention.



Integrative Family and Systems Treatment (I‐FAST) is a treatment model that is developed to work with families that have children with severe emotional and/or behavioral problems. I‐FAST is developed with the purpose of developing an evidence‐based common factors treatment model that address practice realities of social service agencies, embraces social workers’ existing expertise, and empowers the development of expertise at the agency level. Building on evidence based literature regarding effective treatments for this population, I‐FAST identifies three core treatment components that can be integrated into a coherent treatment protocol for working with children, adolescents, and families at risk.


Theoretical framework: 

​Integration of systemic, structural strategic, solution focused, strength based, narrative and social construction approaches.


Core Treatment Components:

  • Developing therapeutic alliance

  • Creating beneficial shift in family patterns of interaction

  • Systems collaboration: working with other involved systems


Training Content:

Case discussion on conceptualization of case by I-FAST and role play on application of skills.


Target :  Social worker, counselor, teacher, pastor, nurse and other helping professional

Language: Cantonese & English
