As multidisciplinary treatment teams continue to be required to address the complex needs of students, it’s important that professionals have guidance on how to best collaborate. Effective collaboration has been associated with better treatment outcomes and less conflict in the workplace. This training is a set of basic guidelines derived from literature on the topic to assist with preventing issues before they arise, developing key competencies required to be an effective collaborator, and how to address issues if and when they arise.
