The practice of psychotherapy is a unique blend of science, art and business. Most clinicians receive strong training in the science, less in the art, and very little about the knowledge and skills practitioners need to survive in the business of psychotherapy. This is the first guide to cover all aspects of therapeutic practice, including developing and maintaining client relationships under managed care; understanding the business side of therapy; and professional development. The Therapists Starter Guide provides new practitioners with the basic skills needed to succeed, thrive, and grow professionally as well as personally.
