Owning My Own Counseling Practice: Is it Right for Me?

Ethics of the Business of Counseling

April 26, 2019

Going into an already established practice or going it alone, there are entrepreneurial, operational and  ethical considerations in decision making that are often neglected and have a profound impact on client care.  Relationships built in both the business and clinical aspects of counseling affect our industry and our ability to provide proper care for our clients. This seminar provides a thorough overview of the entrepreneurial, managerial, technical, and ethical factors required to own and run a successful counseling business.  Developed by experienced owners of large counseling centers, the information you will learn in this training will empower you to evaluate whether becoming a business owner is appropriate for you. This workshop will be hosted by and held at Cornerstone Professional Training Institute at the Cottages.
