Length of Module

This module will take approximately 90 to 120 minutes to complete.


This module provides an overview of the theory underpinning engagement in the therapeutic relationship. It will provide opportunity to develop more specific skills in building useful therapeutic alliances with young people and their families during treatment. This module focuses on a young person's engagement with a service; their therapeutic relationship with the treating team (specifically the case manager); and how engagement is the key to active and collaborative work. Interventions to overcome potential barriers for effective engagement and opportunities to reflect and develop skills to manage fluctuations in the therapeutic relationship will also be covered.

Suitable for

Clinicians and researchers who work with young people in mental health services, primary care settings and other areas of health and human services.
