In this workshop students will receive an overview of professional experience, administrative steps, and practice building strategies needed to start a private psychotherapy practice as a clinical social worker. Presenters will discuss professional experience, clinical supervision, and post-graduate training recommended in preparation for working independently as a clinical social worker. Participants will walk away with knowledge of administrative infrastructure necessary to run an efficient and compliant practice. Finally presenters will offer outreach and marketing strategies for building referral resources. Presenters will draw on their own experiences and those of colleagues as well as published resources on the topic. Participants will be offered opportunities to guide the discussion with questions.
