Aim: The ARMIDILO-S and G are commonly known as risk assessment tools designed for individuals with intellectual functioning limitations, however that is only part of the usefulness of these instruments. The word ‘manageability’ in the title of these instruments denoted the client’s ability to manage his (or her) dynamic risk and protective factor issues in the context that is being considered for the assessment. This paper describes how these factors can be utilised together in a balanced approach to case formulation that will enhance both intervention and case management. Method: The process of case formulation using the ARMIDILO involves the consideration of risk and protective factors inherent to the individual and their environment to provide an overview of the current issues to guide intervention and management priorities. Results: The case profiles show a risk and protective factor-based case formulation enhances client manageability and reduces risk. Conclusions: The premise of this paper is that risk and protective factor-based case formulation can enhance client manageability, intervention effectiveness, and case management efficacy.
