A Collaborative Model of Clinical Preparation: A Move toward Interprofessional Field Experience
Tourse, Robbie Welch Christler; Mooney, Jean F.; Kline, Paul; Davoren, Jeanne
Journal of Social Work Education, v41 n3 p457-477 Fall 2005
This article proposes a model for interprofessional collaboration within the context and process of field experiences in public schools. The model evolved out of a collaborative venture between the schools of social work and education at Boston College. The placement of pairs of social work and education interns in urban schools provided an opportunity to identify the nature of collaboration that is transdisciplinary and not parallel practice. This transdisciplinary practice model is based on a common goal, discipline-specific objectives, and co-facilitated activities. The discussion includes issues of project design and implementation as well as the advantages and challenges of interprofessional field work. (Contains 1 figure.)
