Getting Started in a Behavior Therapy Private Practice

  • Sheldon J. Kaplan
Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series


The methods and mechanics for setting up and nurturing a behavior therapy private practice cannot be found in the research literature. As Goldfried (1983), Lubetkin (1983), and Wachtel (1977) suggest, clinical observations and a clinician’s experiences are important, even though unsystematic, criteria for the successful practice of behavior therapy. The beginning therapist should have guiding principles on which to base his or her practice, a plan for getting referrals, and some ideas as to what services will be provided as the early stages of planning a practice begin.
