Synopses & Reviews
Expert advice for building your private practice
The "business" of practice as a mental health professional is a skill that is seldom taught in school and requires thoughtful guidance and professional mentorship from those who have already succeeded.
Containing the collective wisdom and secrets of many expert practitioners, this helpful resource provides useful insights for setting up, managing, and marketing your practice, including timely advice on being a successful provider in the digital age—from Internet marketing to building your online presence.
Designed for private practices of any size and at any stage of development, this practical guide looks at:
Full of action-oriented ideas, tips, and techniques, Getting Better at Private Practice provides both early career and seasoned mental health professionals with the knowledge and tools they need to establish, develop, and position their practice so that it is financially successful and life-enriching over the long term.
There is a growing trend in private practice to diversify, develop new areas of specialization, and expand the scope of work or income. Author Chris Stout and expert contributors draw on their wealth of experience to provide both early career and seasoned mental health professionals the knowledge and tools needed to establish a new practice or enhance an already active private practice so it succeeds over the long term. Designed for rapid reading and pick-up-and-put-down use, this reference is packed with personal advice, illustrative case examples, helpful insights and actionable ideas and methods.
