What You will Learn

Are you a clinician looking to find the balance between providing compassionate client care and business agility for your mental health practice? Have you thought about building a group practice? Reasons might be work-life balance, accommodating more requests internally rather than referring out, or responding to the increased need for mental health services over the past two years. Whether you are contemplating a change or are in the midst of it, this workshop will help you think about everything that goes into creating a strong infrastructure at the outset to support growth (or perhaps help you decide that growth is not what you want, with a clear picture of what’s involved.) Tune in for all things YOU need to know to start or grow your practice and better serve clients across the board.

  • Learn how to identify, define and articulate a compelling culture for your organization (and understand why this is critical as you grow.

  • Look at both the clinical and business side of running a group practice, to consider what roles will need to be filled and how to find the right people to fill them. Who will be on your bus?

  • Evaluate your training/knowledge base to appreciate what you know going in and how to identify and fill training/knowledge gaps.

  • Assess counseling delivery options, from bricks and mortar to teletherapy, with consideration for pros, cons, and costs

  • Get an overview of reporting requirements, staff management and payroll portals, and other platforms that will help you manage the tactical aspects of running a group practice.
