Most wellness professionals are amazing at caring for others and encourage others to share their best selves, their strengths and good qualities, with the world. But when is the last time you heard a social worker toot her own horn by telling you about all the lives she helped pull out of poverty? How many counselors do you know of who can willingly (without blushing) talk about the countless people who have stopped engaging in self-destructive behaviors because of the assistance he provided? For many of us, it is not in our nature to self-promote, but with marketing being all about self-promotion, how do we uphold both our values of humility and worth? There are ways! This month, we will be talking about ways to communicate your professional value while preserving your personal values.
This is the fourth workshop in an 8-part series for Private Practice start-ups. For more on the other offerings throughout the year go to www.gwa-stl.com. Choose the ones you want to attend or sign up for all 8! By this time next year, you could own the practice of your dreams!
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Anyone thinking of starting a practice, has started a practice and needs a bit more guidance or support, professionals in practice that need help defining the practice, building it up further, or creating a stronger business plan.
WHO IS PRESENTING:
Casey Limmer, MSW, LCSW
Owner and CEO of Gateway Wellness Associates and St. Louis DBT, LLC
Casey has owned her own successful private practice for several years, managed clinical teams, developed fully funded social programing, taught clinical courses at Washington University in St. Louis and -- perhaps her most unique qualification for presenting this workshop -- has contributed to her parent's book (aka, the family business), Understanding Business, the #1 business textbook in the country for well over 25 years. Not many social workers get a 24/7 infusion of business knowledge throughout their lives. Casey brings her unique experiences, her discoveries about the remarkable similarities between being an effective therapist and being a successful entrepreneur, and her highly engaging teaching style together to help wellness professionals of all sorts find their inner business titan.
