Contrary to what many mental health professionals are taught, “entrepreneurship” is not a four letter word. Theoretical concepts of entrepreneurship will be presented as they apply to the development of a private practice. Special emphasis will be placed on developing quality interventions and services in niche markets. Examples of transferring empirically-based research into services that clients will need and purchase will be highlighted, as will practice opportunities for mental health professionals that fall outside the purview of managed care.      

Part of the APA Online Academy Professional Development Presentation Campus.  

Learning Objectives
  • Identify three characteristics of entrepreneurship and how they relate to developing services in a private practice,
  • Describe how to transfer empirically-based research findings into the delivery of high quality services for clients to purchase, and
  • Identify at least five practice opportunities that fall outside of the purview of managed care.
