Interdisciplinary treatment approaches to the treatment of mental or physical disorders that usually arises through the cooperative working of different health professionals in the context of multidisciplinary teams who use a biopsychosocial approach.

Teams, such as in medical fields, may be multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary .[1]:

  • Multidisciplinary teams involve several professionals who independently treat various issues a patient may have, focusing on the issues in which they specialize. The problems that are being treated may or may not relate to other issues being addressed by individual team members.
  • Interdisciplinary team approach involves all members of the team working together towards the same goal. In an interdisciplinary team approach, there can often be role blending by members of the core team, who may take on tasks usually filled by other team members.[1]
