RALEIGH, N.C. – The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts faster than average growth for therapists through 2024. For clinicians seeking ways to tap into the growing market for their services and gain more autonomy, income potential, and flexibility, breaking away from traditional employment to pursue private practice may be a solution.
NASW-NC recognizes that opening a private practice is more involved than being a competent and well-trained clinician, having comfortable office space, and hanging out a shingle. In this workshop to be held in Raleigh, NC on August 20, 2016 mental health clinicians will have an opportunity to learn key elements that go into developing a successful mental health practice.
This comprehensive 6 hour continuing education workshop will cover:
- How to stand out from the competition
- Appropriate business licenses
- Securing office space
- What referral sources most appreciate
- Pros/cons about accepting insurance
- Strategies for administrative management
- Bringing on colleagues (or joining an already established practice)Ways to protect yourself from undue risk exposure
The workshop presenter is Laurie Conaty, MSW, LCSW, LCAS, PA. Laurie is a member of Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers and a member of NASW-NC. A Past President of the NC Society for Clinical Social Work, Laurie was named Clinical Social Worker of the Year in 2007.
