In community social pediatrics, assessment/course of action refers to the meeting between the clinical team and the child, family and key people in the child’s life. A unique clinical process lies at the heart of this and all follow-up meetings, which uses the EEDA method (Establishing, Exchanging, Decoding and Action) and relies on a collaborative effort, where the child is always the focus of the discussion.

By watching a film illustrating a CSP meeting, you will discover the fictional story of Simon, a young boy struggling with behaviour problems in school, and become familiar with each of the steps in the clinical process used in assessment/course of action.

Throughout this interactive session, you will also have the opportunity to watch interviews with three experienced community social pediatrics professionals who will share their views on CSP know-how, each person’s role, as well as behaviours to incorporate (or avoid!) during assessment/course of action.

Enjoy the training session!


After completing this training session, you will be able to:

  • Differentiate the steps in the CSP clinical process and understand your role in the process and within the context of collaborative intervention (collective know-how) and
  • Recognize which attitudes and actions taken during the assessment/course of action meeting help you to put into practice the EEDA method (Establishing, Exchanging, Decoding and Action).
