Example text

In ­contrast, all members of a team usually have some contact with clients served by the team. In treatment conferences, participants generally focus on one client at a time. Members who are familiar with the client contribute information that may be helpful in Introduction developing or improving a treatment plan. Other members, who might not be familiar with the client, can also contribute their expertise about how to treat most effectively the type of problem the client is experiencing. Because of this information, the group discusses the client’s overall circumstances and considers alternative treatment plans.

For example, there may be a brief statement of the purpose of the group at the beginning followed by a speaker and then a time for members to share concerns and issues. This set structure enables members to feel comfortable attending quickly, even if they are new to the group or if they have missed meetings. New members quickly learn the structure and feel comfortable with what is going to happen during the meeting and what is expected of them. The focus of self-help groups is on members helping members.

The team might also be composed of paraprofessionals, such as mental health therapy aides. Evidence suggests that there is value in involving clients and family members as members of the team (Abramson & Bronstein, 2004), yet this does not often happen in practice. Meetings should avoid focusing solely on service delivery—some time should be devoted to how members function as a group (Bruner & Spink, 2011; Toseland, Palmer-­Ganeles, & Chapman, 1986), a process known as team building. Neglecting team functioning can lead to a variety of problems, such as interpersonal conf lict and ­rivalry, duplication of effort, and uncoordinated or incomplete service (Levi, 2014).
