A rise of resources
While most psychologists understand the importance of multi-
disciplinary teamwork, many were trained in an era when

guide these practicing professionals as well, organizations across
the country are compiling research-backed resources. Here’s a

interprofessional practice needed across the health professions.
In February, APA’s Council of Representatives voted to endorse
the competencies in the report.
