Team Perspective Seminar
This seminar offers students the opportunity to observe an interprofessional team as they review a case and formulate assessment and/ or treatment plans.

Students will reflect on and discuss the team process and dynamics in terms of communication, power or hierarchy and role responsibilities. They will also be asked to identify the key clinical issues that arose with regards to treatment and support of individuals with developmental disabilities.
