For whom is this module suitable?
The module ‘Get your finances in order’ is an intervention intended for anyone who wishes to make an action plan regarding their finances. Minddistrict developed both a generic and an IAPT version of the module. Read more about the IAPT-version below.
What is the content of the module?
The module was developed in close collaboration with an expert panel of practitioners and users. It consists of the following three sessions:
- Get your finances in order: the user reads information and tips to help them on their way. They determine whether they’re handling their money wisely and read about other people’s experiences. At the end of the session, the patient considers what they’re happy with, what they’re not happy with and what they’d like to change.
- Get your finances in order: Make an action plan: the user builds on the previous session by turning what they’d like to change into a concrete goal and action plan. They do so in five simple steps. At the end of the session, the patient is encouraged to implement their action plan.
- Take a look back: the user considers where they stand and what they'd still like to work on.
How do you use the module?
‘Get your finances in order’ can be used as either a complimentary module in addition to a (treatment) module or as a stand-alone module. The sessions are marked as guided, which means the practitioner provides online feedback after each session. However, as a practitioner you can choose to offer one, more or all sessions without guidance. This allows the user to work through the module independently.
The module is flexible in use: you can tailor it to your patient’s individual needs. For instance, by removing the ‘Take a look back’ session if you prefer to only evaluate the action plan in a face-to-face session. In general, the module can be used alongside face-to-face sessions as a way of continuing treatment outside of the therapy room. The answers users give to the online exercises will enable you to prepare more specifically for future face-to-face sessions.
This module is also available as self-help, where users can read through relevant information, create an action plan and evaluate on their own. Read more about Self-help: Get your finances in order.
In the IAPT version of this module ‘Get your finances in order, the Minimum Data Set is interwoven throughout the module and the final session consists of a patient experience questionnaire.
