When Adriana arrived at Elmhurst this past October as a second clinician on site, she was eager to support the students and families in this community. Adriana found that sharing a cultural connection with a family (both Adriana and this family identify as Mexican-American) can have a great therapeutic impact that goes beyond a common language and communication. Lilly and Adriana discovered an opportunity to collaborate around what this particular family was asking for to best meet their needs. Here was a family that really wanted to work with a Spanish-speaking clinician and a client (a middle schooler) in a different developmental state in which he was trying to become more independent and requesting his own therapist separate from the family therapist. How exciting that we were able to meet both the family’s needs and honor the client’s request to continue with his therapist that he had been building a good therapeutic relationship with! Lifting and integrating student and family voice is a big part of our program’s goal, and this collaborative therapeutic approach is aligned with that! Working to build a truly collaborative and holistic team of providers, Lilly and Adriana also partner with the medical center on campus to support this youth and family. We are so excited to see the wonderful work Lilly and Adriana are doing to jointly hold this client and family in a way that feels equitable and supportive!
