Meaningful Collaboration Between Psychiatrists and Therapists
Do you ever get anxious about when, if, or how to best collaborate with a psychiatrist? If you do, this presentation will help! It addresses how to create meaningful collaboration between psychiatrists and therapists. Drs. Booth and Goodrich will use clinical case vignettes to examine ways in which effective and efficient communication between therapists and psychiatrists can improve the quality of care and optimize mental health outcomes for our clients. We will explore how to determine when to reach out a psychiatrist and common barriers to meaningful communication between psychiatrists and therapists.
