Building an IDT: Using Various Skillsets and Team Players to Promote Cohesion (Session 1)

Presented by Amie Burke, BCBA; Mike Jersey, LPC             New Lenox, IL

We all have a unique skill sets to bring to the table. However, often we are not successful as
members of an inter-disciplinary team in both the planning stage as well as when acting in
times of crisis.  We are all faced with challenging cases that often require us to “think
outside the box.”  Amie and Mike have two completely different approaches to treatment,
yet mesh together perfectly, promoting understanding and utilizing each other’s skill set.
During this workshop, Amie and Mike will explain case consultation from the mind of a
behavior analyst as well as a clinician. Their mix of humor and expertise is refreshing and a
great lesson about utilizing the unique skills the staff within your agency currently possess.
