A Chapter from the book, Earning a Living Outside of Managed Mental Health Care : 50 Ways to Expand Your Practice
JUST RELEASED MAY 2010
I am pleased to announce publication of my chapter, “Retreats for
Personal Growth,” in the book, Earning a Living Outside of Managed
Mental Health Care: 50 Ways to Expand Your Practice.
Published by the American Psychological Association.
Psychologists are increasingly dissatisfied with managed care
companies, yet they lack sound guidance on developing a practice that
is not insurance-based. This book illustrates 50 strategies for
creating a practice that is not dependent on managed care or
insurance. The contributors describe how they successfully carved out
a niche in areas as varied as family and divorce counseling, teaching
and supervision, health care, product development, and organizational
consulting. They also describe their practice arrangements, training
experiences, and primary activities, as well as the pros and cons of
the career path; effective business approaches; and useful
professional resources, books, journals, websites, and societies.
This book provides plenty of ideas for early career psychologists and
graduate students interested in starting a private practice as well as
for seasoned practitioners who want to develop alternative income
sources to minimize dependence on insurance companies.
Hardcover. 243 pages. 2010.
