How do you handle, work through or stay on the same page with a clinician (whether it be a dietitian, therapist, doctor or psychiatrist) who might have a different style or approach than you? Meredith and Jill explore the complexities of staying on the same page with your treatment team when the client may experience a different approach or style from different clinicians. They discuss the importance of frequent communication and collaboration. Meredith and Jill also explore how to provide feedback to another clinician if that individual’s style may collide with yours. Be careful though! At times a client will say that a clinician is not a "good fit" due to more avoidance. Make sure you "dig a little deeper" when you hear a client wants to switch treatment team members. Also be careful not to just refer to "your friend" and make sure the clinician you are referring to has the approach or style you feel the client needs.
