Just starting out as a therapist? This confidence-building workshop provides a detailed roadmap of what to expect as a professional. Lynn Grodzki, a senior therapist and national business coach, will expand your understanding of clinical issues that can confuse a new therapist. Find out how to untangle your most difficult cases and strategies to stay calm and grounded when sessions get tough.

You will learn six essential steps that enhance the possibility of success in all of your cases, including how to organize key information about a case, improve your initial relationship with a client, frame goals, and measure progress. You will learn how to retain clients long enough for them to reach their therapeutic goals.

The workshop will also focus on ways to effectively handle business issues and strategies to give you an edge when starting a private practice. You will learn tips to help yourself feel more confident in your ability to find clients, have an online presence, and understand some basic do’s and don’ts of practice-building. Best of all, you’ll meet a self-selected group of new professional friends with whom to stay in touch, share ideas, and pass on referrals.

You will learn —

How to structure the initial consultation with new clients to optimize your effectiveness in subsequent sessions
About typical clinical pitfalls that new therapists encounter and how to address them
How to find new clients
Strategies for client retention
