Counselor Collaboration with Healthcare
Enhancing Counselor Collaboration in Healthcare
Many counselors & mental health professionals receive their first jobs & training in healthcare environments but most have not received education or formal training working alongside medical professionals. As counselors we often learn informally from other disciplines & not leveraging the training of the counseling profession. As integrated healthcare becomes more the standard, counselors who are better equipped to collaborate with other healthcare providers & ultimately better serve their clients. If you are still under supervision or newly licensed, work in a healthcare setting or considering collaborating with physicians & other healthcare specialties consider an introductory consultation session or package.
