This workshop aims to equip teachers’ skills in handling students who exhibit emotional and / or behavioural problems in their industrial attachment by using the Integrative Family and Systems Treatment (I-FAST) model. I‐FAST is developed with the purpose of developing an evidence‐based common factors treatment model that 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 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. This workshop provides fieldwork teachers a framework to understand the emotional arousal of students in their industrial attachment. It also equips them with possible intervention skills to handle students’ emotional stress during their industrial attachment.
