Katie Vernoy, MS, LMFT and Curt Widhalm, MA, MS, LMFT|Building Your Treatment Team in Private Practice: Essential Networking Skills for Therapists (1 CE hour)
Clients are often best served by a robust treatment team. Specific diagnoses (like Eating Disorders or Serious Mental Illness) require treatment teaming as a best practice and many others are best served when you are collaborating with the other health and wellness professionals in your clients’ lives. Creating and working within treatment teams in private practice creates a unique challenge. How do you find these professionals and how do you best work with them? The meetings in the hall in treatment centers and agencies can’t happen when you’re at your own office or working virtually. What can modern therapists do? This workshop will explore the importance of treatment teams, how to identify who belongs on your treatment teams, and the essential networking skills to create these important relationships.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Describe three benefits of interdisciplinary treatment teaming
- Identify two professionals to reach out to for collaboration on current cases for their current caseload
- Create an actionable plan to develop a professional treatment team
