IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT BUILDING AND MAINTAINING A THRIVING ETHICAL PRIVATE PRACTICE....

You will want to clear your calendar for this three-day intensive program.

March 31-April 2, 2022

This boot-camp is for mental health professionals across the professional life span: from students who are beginning to plan ahead for their own practices, through the seasoned professional who has decades of experience.

 

Success in private practice is not defined simply by having a full schedule. Success means having a practice that is aligned with your values, goals and lifestyle, and that can be readily adapted to evolving stages in your career path.

 

Through informative presentations by TPI practice consultants, along with deep-dive small group activities, you will gain a solid grasp of the key factors necessary for success and personal satisfaction in private practice - not just for now, but for years to come.

 

Our goal is for you to leave this three-day virtual conference with clarity and practical action steps for an ethically responsible profitable business, regardless of economic conditions, market competition, and changing socio-political landscapes.

 

You cannot get this experience from books!  Plus, earn up to 18 CE credits*
