Case Conceptualisation (5Ps)


In this workshop, participants will learn to conceptualise cases using 5Ps: presenting issues, precipitating factors, predisposing factors, perpetuating factors and protective factors.


Participants will be introduced how dysfunctional coping strategies and defence mechanisms could serve as perpetuating factors. They will also learn to appreciate moment-by-moment forming hypotheses and how the experience shaped our conceptualisation as we engaged clients.


  • Guiding principles of case conceptualisation
  • Presenting issues
  • Precipitating factors
  • Predisposing factors
  • Perpetuating factors (coping strategies and defense mechanisms)
  • Protective factors




Participants who meet 80% class attendance will be awarded a Certificate of Accomplishment by the Academy of Human Development.
