Abstract

Counseling psychologists have demonstrated a growing interest in the health field at a time when major changes are occurring in reimbursement and service delivery systems. In particular the need for broad-based, comprehensive treatments within cost-effective service delivery models has led to increased use of multidisciplinary staffing arrangements and increased competition among provider groups. In this article, the authors provide a historical overview of a multidisciplinary training component that has operated within a counseling psychology training program since 1979. Lessons learned from this experience are shared and recommendations are made for the future training of counseling psychologists who seek health-related careers.
