Essentials of Private Practice: Streamlining Costs, Procedures, and Policies for Less Stress

This book offers mental health professionals a valuable resource in establishing and maintaining their practices. This highly useful information is not typically provided in graduate programs or continuing education courses. Practical suggestions will help practitioners achieve a successful practice by increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

Three main strategies are emphasized: lowering overhead expenses, simplifying daily procedures, and implementing efficient client policies. Along with nuts-and bolts information on simplifying insurance paperwork, managing appointments, and handling billing, readers will learn how to keep more income, preserve their time and energy, and minimize stress in their day-to-day practice. These streamlining steps require less investment of resources compared to marketing efforts, and promote financial viability whether working full-time or part-time, seeing insured and/or self-pay clients.

Softcover, 237 pages.
