BUILDING A PRIVATE PRACTICE: SESSION B
Using a small-group seminar format, this four-session course offers a forum in which participants can think through, from a psychodynamic perspective, some complex clinical challenges involved in building a successful private practice. We will focus on issues such as money, beginning and deepening treatment, diversity, and developing your professional support system and referral structure. Participants will develop initial evaluation skills so as to better assess whether their private practice is a suitable treatment venue for each potential patient. We will also address issues commonly encountered when working remotely via video platform, such as Zoom, or by telephone. The course instructors will provide references for information relating to more practical issues such as record-keeping and maintaining HIPPA compliance, and some class time will be dedicated to discussing these matters. This course is designed to allow an exploration of a few crucial components of building a successful private practice. Faculty include representatives from different disciplines, providing multiple perspectives while also allowing for discipline-specific questions to be addressed.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify two practical and clinical implications of using different forms of communication in private practice.
  2. Describe different ways in which to consider and promote diversity in one’s practice and provide accessibility for under-served populations.
  3. Discuss how the initial evaluation is vital in building a manageable caseload, both in gauging goodness of fit between you and the patient, and through being realistic about the potential clinical effectiveness of what you can offer to a particular patient.
  4. Compare different modes of building and maintaining supervisory and collegial support systems.
