Continuing Education

Building a Private Practice

Date: 9:00am - 4:00pm PDT April 11 Location: Lewis & Clark Graduate School

Lewis & Clark Graduate School

This training is a comprehensive exploration of building a private practice in counseling and therapy. Together, we will examine the ethical and legal obligations involved in offering services in a private practice setting, professional business choices, marketing and branding and the realities of maintaining a work/life balance.

There will be a special focus on social justice and equity as a consideration in best practices and the implications of niche services. This workshop will be both informative and engaging, while providing space for clinicians to collaborate, question, and elevate the discussion of owning and running a private practice in service of our communities—as well as those who choose mental health care outside of an agency setting.

Following the workshop, participants will have an increased knowledge of:

  • How board requirements, laws, and ethics agreed upon by a licensee help shape a private practice
  • The options for consultation, supervision, and scope of a practice
  • Branding, marketing and niche services in various community settings (i.e. rural, urban, saturated, underserved)
  • The responsibilities, freedom, collaboration and work/life balance of a private practice
