Strengthening the Interdisciplinary Team

Deepening Skills to Advance Collaborative Work

Strengthening the Interdisciplinary TeamWorking as part of the Interdisciplinary Collaborative Team can be both enormously satisfying, and at times, frustrating and challenging. Clarifying the role of each professional and developing a common language for working together is essential for professionals on the Team, as well as for our clients. Knowing how to work as a team, and actually ‘walk the talk’ in real time, requires the desire and capacity to have a deeper conversation with colleagues.

By understanding and valuing the concept of shared leadership, collaborative work can be brought to another level and will help ensure a successful outcome for both professionals and clients. We know that sharing responsibility for both the well-being of your client, and the resolution of the conflict can, on occasion, be a barrier to effective Team practice.
