Most of us want to go into private practice to help others achieve peace and happiness in their lives, and perhaps to work independently rather than for someone else. We bring our considerable clinical skills into this venture, but it is important to also remember that a private practice is a business. As sole practitioners, we need support, supervision, and great self-care skills in order to maintain a successful practice over time. In this workshop, regional area experts will present on topics related to the “nuts and bolts” of setting up and maintaining a successful private practice in the helping professions.
After the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Describe the ethical considerations related to starting and maintaining a private practice
- Understand how to create a trauma-informed private practice
- Synthesize the logistical business and licensing aspects of operating a private practice
- Summarize marketing strategies that promote effective branding
This event will satisfy three CE credits for Ethics.
