Social workers and other behavioral health clinicians often express interest in working in a private practice setting, intrigued by the flexible work schedule as well as the earning potential. However, these clinicians may be uncertain of how to enter into this area of practice, and may need to learn about potential practice pitfalls and ethical considerations they could encounter. This course will outline the steps to develop a practical business model that has the greatest potential for clinical and financial success, based on the social work code of ethics.
