Clinicians spend a great deal of time in their training becoming excellent in practicing their craft of assessment and psychotherapy. These skills are mastered in order to deliver excellent clinical services. However, in professional training little, if any, emphasis is placed on learning, refining and mastering the business aspects of private practice. In their book "Financial Success in Mental Health Practice: Essential Tools and Strategies for Practitioners," (APA Books, 2008) Walfish and Barnett present a list of Twenty Principles of Private Practice Success. This course presents an overview of each of these principles and how each relates to the development of a clinically effective and financially sound private practice.
