Case Studies

A case study is a training method using realistic scenarios that focus on a specific issue, topic or problem. Case studies are used in both clinical training and training skills courses. Some clinical case studies describe histories of actual clients while other case studies, particularly those used for training skills, are hypothetical examples based on situations that are known to occur. Participants typically read, study and react to the case study in writing or verbally during a group discussion. Participants may work separately or in small groups to solve or complete a case study.
