Providing therapists practical solutions to managed care's erosion of their freedom to practice, this book presents a working blueprint for a private-pay psychotherapy practice. Dana C. Ackley casts out the distortions that have crept into many clinicians' thinking as a result of reliance on third-party reimbursement. Based on his own experience, he shows how you can serve clients--and yourself--better by developing real alternatives to the pressures and bureaucracy of managed care. In clear step-by-step detail, including practical exercises and checklists, sample marketing materials, and payment plans, the volume shows you how to:
*Rediscover the economic and clinical value of your work
*Discard assumptions that might block your progress
*Educate yourself about the needs of potential clients
*Market and sell your services effectively
*Learn ethical, reasonable business-of-practice skills
*Diversify into the rewarding area of psychological consultation to businesses.
No matter what your clinical style, theoretical orientation, or practice history, you will benefit from the hard-won lessons Dr. Ackley shares in this book.
