Course Description:
The course is based on an excellent book by Monique Levermore, Ph.D..  The book provides a step-by-step guide for developing a successful private practice.  The book is easy to read and details how the author built a successful private practice.  According to the author “Most of the books that are available to inform about the business aspects of practice miss the mark by being either too focused on the business aspects or too focused on the caring aspects of clinical practice. The current text makes an effort to delicately combine the business information with clinical considerations in order to develop the type of practice that can be ethically sound, with business savvy providing effective intervention for clients and lucrative revenues for the practitioner.   [This book will teach you] . . . how to create a business from scratch, develop it into a success and reap the rewards of smart decision making in building a revenue producing, effective helping profession practice. . . . Business is a dynamic process that is forever changing. Once you possess the basic principles necessary to manage the business aspects of practice then as things change around you, you can evolve to meet the challenge.”

This is an excellent resource for any clinician who wishes to develop a private practice. It lays the groundwork for dealing effectively with clients, peers and other professionals in the field.  This is a particularly useful course for professionals who are seeking to develop and expand their private practice.  Clinical training programs do not include the business training necessary to develop a thriving private practice. 

Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as midwives and dieticians and nutritionists who have a private practice.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to engage in private practice and increase their revenue.

Author: Levermore, Monique
