Antioch University New England Alumni Notes
I thought you might be interested in a project I’ve been working on the past four years. I founded a coalition of New York psychologists and social workers, www.TherapySafetyNet.org. Our organization operates as a free referral service to help uninsured New Yorkers afford psychotherapy in private practice settings. Our target demographic is uninsured workers who would otherwise fall through the cracks–earning too much to qualify for Medicaid or other public programs, yet not insured by their employers. Membership in our coalition offers psychotherapists in private practice an organized way of fulfilling the ethical obligation to devote some portion of one’s practice to those in need for little or no compensation.
