Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To present experiences with teams in a university hospital and various community settings that promote the learning of collaboration among different professionals.

METHOD:

Research in developmental psychopathology has increasingly linked childhood vulnerabilities and risk factors to adolescent and adult disorders. In this context the multidisciplinary teams can be seen as the expression of the expanding knowledge and expertise of the medical and allied health professionals, which can be directed toward promotion of health as well as prevention and cure of illness.

RESULTS:

Collaboration reflects the application of biopsychosocial principles to consultation and research both in the community and in hospital, and the general trend in medicine to move from solo to team practice.

CONCLUSION:

Psychiatrists have the obligation to promote, develop and maintain the psychosocial and personal dimension in the teaching and practice of medicine.
