The Patient, the Therapist, and the Therapeutic Process: A Triadic Journey into Successful Private Practice  |  View Full Calendar

Presented by Joshua Richmond, MPW (Pre-registration has closed. Please pay at the door)


This course is conceived as a two-part seminar led by an NCP Training and

Supervising Analyst and an early career therapist. Their objective is to engage
participants in evaluating internal and external ramifications and guidelines
when developing a private practice. A hands-on technique is offered to discover
creative ways for clinicians to grow a successful, rewarding private practice.
Practical aspects of establishing a practice are discussed, including, but not
limited to, setting up an office, marketing, advertising, training, fees, use of
supervision and mentorship. Establishing a frame of treatment is considered
from an internal and external perspective. Emotional resistances to developing
a practice are explored through vignettes and participant interaction.
Learning Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
• Develop tools to facilitate all the crucial steps of practice-building, focusing
on strategies tailored to their strengths
• Learn how training, supervision, and mentorship are key elements to building
private practices
• Identify ten tips for setting up the “frame of treatment” to ensure a
successful practice
• Understand how emotional resistances can inhibit self-promotion when
developing a private practice
