Course Meets Three Tuesdays
 October 11th & 25th, November 8, 2011
Time: 6:30PM to 9:00PM

Course Objective
Participants will learn the basics of what it takes to be ready for and to begin a private practice, both on the practical and emotional level.

This three-session seminar is designed to help participants assess their readiness for private practice and focus on the steps necessary to move toward establishing a successful practice.  Topics that will be included go from the pragmatic (i.e., finding an office, getting on insurance panels, malpractice insurance, bookkeeping, methods for billing) to clinical dilemmas around boundaries, medication consultations, fee setting, anxiety related to uncertain income, as well as networking, marketing, ways to develop ongoing support, and consultation.

Shirley Bonney, LICSW & Karen Hansen, LICSW

Requirements: Considering or just starting private practice
Continuing Education Credits: 6 hours CE
Course Size: 20 (minimum 10 participants)

Participant testimonial "Loved this class!  Karen and Shirley facilitated important conversation and activities to answer questions about how a person might define their clinical niche, market themselves, and develop personal and professional support while building a private practice.  I also appreciated the very practical "nuts and bolts" section of the class which helped to ease some anxieties about where to start.   I'd recommend this class to anyone who is planning to open a private practice or who feels stuck in their new practice."  Lyla Ross, LICSW
