This user-friendly, practical guide summarizes everything therapists need to know about setting up, growing, and protecting their independent therapy practice.

In this book, a team of experienced psychologists with diverse experiences and perspectives guides readers through the common and not-so-common challenges inherent in managing an independent practice. Given that the COVID pandemic has changed therapy from a service typically delivered in person to one often conducted via teleconference, therapists need to ensure that their practice meets the changing needs of their clients as well as themselves. The chapters flow from initial preparation for successful independent practice and creating a business plan, to closing or selling a practice, and everything in between, including:

Helping clients find you
Preparing for emergencies
Self and community care
Legal, insurance, and financial issues

The authors also provide key resources including professional guidelines relevant to therapists, recommendations for responding to subpoenas and submitting records testimony, providing information to professional will executors, and semistructured interviews and assessments with different types of clients.
