Abstract and Keywords

Best practices in child and adolescent mental health often point to multimodal treatments for moderate-to-severe distress and impairment in functioning. Mental health professionals, however, are not often experienced in recognizing and addressing various factors that promote or impede effective collaboration by clinicians of diverse training or orientation. This chapter presents the role of child psychiatrists in working within a collaborative care model with clinical child and adolescent psychologists. Discussed are the benefits and barriers to collaborative clinical care, strategies for addressing sometimes complex administrative issues, and models for promoting professional development and supervision within a collaborative care team. Optimizing patient benefits and reducing risk are key positive outcomes in productive collaboration between medical and psychosocial treatment providers.

Keywords: multimodal treatment, collaborative care, professional development, supervision, risk reduction, medication, patient, psychiatry
