Mock Interdisciplinary Staffing: Educating for Interprofessional Collaboration
Quealy-Berge, Diana; Caldwell, Karen
Counselor Education and Supervision, v43 n4 p310-320 Jun 2004
Training for interprofessional collaboration is important because professionals are increasingly required to work together in a coordinated and collaborative manner to meet the complex needs of clients. However, few published reports exist on interprofessional training for community counselors and marriage and family therapists. The authors discuss the use of a mock interdisciplinary staffing with students who are training to be counselors and marriage and family therapists. This method of instruction holds promise as an effective means of introducing students to a range of issues, including the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for interprofessional practice.
