What you’ll learn
Grad school provided a great education and foundation for your clinical work. But if you’re like most mental health professionals, you got very little training in the business side of clinical practice. Business mistakes can be expensive, not only in terms of money, but also lost time and lost opportunities. We’ll walk you through the essentials of sound and ethical business decisions and procedures.
Our goal is for you to leave the conference with clarity and practical action steps for a profitable business, regardless of political or economic conditions. Topics to be covered include:
- Pros and cons of private practice as a career path
