Succeeding in Private Practice: A Business Guide for Psychotherapists by Eileen Lenson



Drawing on in-depth interviews, case studies and the author′s extensive consulting experience, this book demonstrates to both new and experienced therapists how to start and manage a successful private practice.

Lenson explores a wide range of organizational issues that arise in private practice, including: selecting a client population; marketing; personal image; setting and collecting fees; record-keeping and time management. She also considers ethical concerns, such as client contracts, termination of therapy and availability of records to third parties, and suggests strategies to cope with the loneliness, stress and sense of isolation often felt by psychotherapists.
