Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series


The business and services of independently practicing psychologists is a growing phenomenon. Stapp and Fulcher (1983) and VandenBos and Stapp (1983) have surveyed psychologists to determine the distribution of their employment activities. Stapp and Fulcher’s (1983) findings show that the percentage of psychologists who indicated that their primary employment was independent practice has increased from 12.2% in 1976 to 14.7% in 1978, and to 15.8% in 1982. In addition, 54% of those surveyed who were doctoral-level psychologists not in private practice indicated that they were in private practice on a part-time basis.
