Presentation at Pace University: Getting started in private practice

As in years past, I presented on April 20, 2012 to the class of predoctoral interns and externs at Pace University’s counseling center on the topic, Getting Started in Private Practice. It was a pleasure to give this talk to a bright, motivated group of students who are in the final stretch of doctoral studies.

While graduate study in psychology may offer excellent clinical training, it does not begin to teach how to start and run a private practice. This year’s talk focused on topics that included niche development, social media, and clinical supervision.

The purpose of the presentation was not only to impart practical know-how, but also to counter the excessively discouraging and cautionary  characterization of private practice that unfortunately is often conveyed in graduate programs in psychology.
