Riassunto: Providing therapists practical solutions to managed care's erosion of their freedom to practice, this book presents a working blueprint for a private-pay psychotherapy practice. Dana C. Ackley casts out the distortions that have crept into many clinicians' thinking as a result of reliance on third-party reimbursement. Based on his own experience, he shows how you can serve clients--and yourself--better by developing real alternatives to the pressures and bureaucracy of managed care. In clear step-by-step detail, including practical exercises and checklists, sample marketing materials, and payment plans, the volume shows you how to:
*Rediscover the economic and clinical value of your work
*Discard assumptions that might block your progress
*Educate yourself about the needs of potential clients
*Market and sell your services effectively
*Learn ethical, reasonable business-of-practice skills
*Diversify into the rewarding area of psychological consultation to businesses.
No matter what your clinical style, theoretical orientation, or practice history, you will benefit from the hard-won lessons Dr. Ackley shares in this book.
Dana C. Ackley, PhD, is a clinical psychologist in independent practice in Roanoke, Virginia. Unwilling to join managed care panels, he has developed a model for practicing outside third party reimbursement. His approach has been featured in the Family Therapy Networker, the National Psychologist, and Practice Strategies. His workshop has been sponsored by APA's Division 42, the Colorado Psychological Association, the Ohio Psychological Association, and NCS Assessments, as well as by therapist groups in Maine and Idaho.
