Starting, Maintaining and Expanding a Successful Private Practice: Surviving or Thriving?

The landscape of private practice for mental health professionals is ever changing. The thriving practice must adapt, change, and continue to redefine its relevance to clients and referral sources. For the mental health professional just starting, to the large group practice, thriving practices take risks and differentiate themselves from the competition.

This practical, nuts and bolts seminar will present tried and true practice building strategies to begin a practice from the ground up and to expand an existing practice to the next level. Profit from Norm Dasenbrook’s experience and strategic relationships with leading mental health professionals, print and web designers, billing and software vendors, attorneys, national professional organizations, and political action committees that provide cutting edge information on the latest trends, niches and legislation that impact private practice.
