Interprofessional collaboration impacts counselors during those times when coordinating care with physicians, social workers, psychologists, parole officers, nurses, and other professions. This webinar will explore the six essential practice competencies required in interprofessional collaboration, propose a rationale for using the Transtheoretical Model (TTM) in interprofessional encounters, and suggest ways that counselors could use the TTM productively in a collaborative environment. The three assumptions of the TTM work together during change processes. The levels of change are the interactive areas that influence and are influenced by change; the stages of change illustrate progress and development over time; and the processes of change are the activities needed to move through the stages of change. Combining the three assumptions can enhance interprofessional collaboration in elected and required situations.
