Goal setting resources

Post by firegal » Thu May 18, 2017 1:11 pm

Hey guys, don't know if anyone else struggles with this but I find it really difficult helping people identify therapeutic goals. It is something I've taken to supervision and I do use the magic questions and SMART goals and those bits. Just wondering if people have particular favourite techniques/resources/worksheets for this, especially those aimed at a CAMHS setting.

I used the techniques you gave listed the reasonable affect (with clients in a substance misuse servoce). Another approach could be asking clients to consider their values. I find this helps to provide a direction for people, which makes it easier to then think about what their goal might be. I also think if a person can connect their values to a goal, then the goal becomes more meaningful to them, rather than just a thing we are asking them to do. Don't know if if that's helpful, but that's helped me.

I was at a meeting training the other day when there was a suggestion of a daydreams group so thinking about goals from people's dreams and take it from there

I don't know whether this is the sort of thing you're looking for or not, but I really like Goal Attainment Scaling. It's great for being able to break down a goal and see the steps the client identifies would be them moving towards the goal based on where they are now. I think it could work quite well in CAMHS, take a look at this and see if it's the sort of thing you're wanting:
