This article presents a case study involving a challenging client on a pediatric rehabilitation unit, describes his impact on an interdisciplinary team that had recently been formed from two units from different hospitals, and discusses the resulting need for a team-building intervention for the new unit. The context of the problem, the client's case study, and a description of a series of seminars are presented and analyzed from a group developmental perspective.
