Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of collaboration among the student researcher, who is a music therapist, a student speech and language pathologist, and a counseling education student. The student researcher evaluated her own experiences along with the experiences of the two student therapists, who were participants in the study, during the collaborative process to uncover the full experience of the process of working together. The student researcher and two student therapists met together once a week to plan sessions and will be expressing their emotions and experience through journaling prompts each week. The student researcher collected data through journaling prompts that the student therapists completed after each session and then coded the prompts to find themes that highlight the student therapists lived human experience during interprofessional collaboration. The three themes were: Team Focused/Collaboration, Client Responses and Client Focus. The student researcher uncovered that interprofessional collaboration was beneficial and the student therapists perceived that they grew in their ability to adapt in the moment to meet client needs, work with other disciplines outside of their scope of practice, and learn and understand the ways interprofessional collaboration takes place in a healthcare setting.
