TOPIC: Safety And Success In Private Practice 

 This presentation will cover some of the dangers and statistics that surround harm in Private Practice, and generally speaking in the helping profession.  Most companies use, or have a safety plan in place, however, when a person goes into Private Practice this is often the last thing they consider. After working with and interviewing many psychotherapist, psychologist, and visiting many different types of practices, most are missing some basic safety elements. Safety, has a direct impact on our ability to be Successful. 


1. How to screen callers and ask specific intake questions

2. Evaluate surroundings, and make changes to work space

3. Identify potential harmful objects that clients can have access to

4. How to advertise your practice, using safe methods

5. Learn how and why the check in process can work, and when it won’t.
