Integrative Family and Systems Treatment 
(I-FAST) 2020

導師︰Ms. Constance YEUNG 楊錦珠女士



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


Integrative Family and Systems Treatment (I‐FAST) is a treatment model that is developed to work with various families with different natures of problems. I‐FAST is developed as an evidence‐based ‘strength based common factors approach’ which addresses 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, I‐FAST identifies three core treatment components that can be integrated into a coherent treatment protocol for working with children, adolescents, addiction and families at risk.


Theoretical framework:

Integration of the following philosophies and perspectives: 
1. Strength based theory
2. Family and systemic theories
3. Social construction theory



Core Treatment Components:

  • Developing therapeutic alliance

  • Creating beneficial shift in family patterns of interaction

  • Systems collaboration: working with other involved systems


Training Content:

1. Case discussion on conceptualization of case and formulation of intervention by I-FAST.

    A template (road  map) of I-FAST will be applied.

2. Role play on application of micro questioning skills.

3. At least one case presentation by each participant is required


Language: Cantonese supplemented with English


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