Interested in starting or growing your private practice? Do you want a small part-time practice? Or, are you considering private practice as a full- time profession? If so, this lively, hands-on workshop is for you.

The number of mental health providers considering private practice is increasing. Unfortunately, graduate programs do not teach you how to start, develop and maintain an ethical and satisfying private practice. In this interactive workshop, you will learn the do's and don'ts of a successful private practice.

Some of the topics covered include:

● Is private practice right for you?
● Ethical standards
● Pros and cons of private practice
● Third party payments
● Full time vs. part time
● Fees and collections
● How to set up your practice
● Business cards and brochures
● Setting goals for you practice
● Self-care for the practitioner
● Location, location, location

Of course, one of the most important aspects of a private practice is referrals. You will learn how, when, and where to get referrals. You will learn ethical advertising and marketing techniques that you can use to increase your referrals.

Handouts will be included: You will receive sample letters and forms that you can use with your practice.

Thomas J. Nardi, Ph.D. will share with you his 35 years of experience as a psychologist in private practice. He is the Director of the New York Center for Eclectic Cognitive Behavior Therapy and has been a training supervisor at the Albert Ellis Institute. Dr. Nardi is the Director of Counseling Programs at LIU's Rockland and West Point campuses.
