For a successful clinical team, there has to be a balance in the partnerships among the team members. The success of our field has, in large part, been the result of people with complementary skills coming together to solve problems with our clients. Pressures of funding, among other things, have made this increasingly difficult but still as important. We risk losing the heart of what has made this field so successful and impactful in such a relatively short period of time. We need to "re-group". But, how do you utilize each others’ talents and skills? There are real, but not insurmountable everyday roadblocks. Lack of time, little experience, etc. This course will forge a discussion about where we have been, where we are now and where we should be heading as a field.
