Starting and Surviving are two challenging areas in the business world of private practice. This workshop helps clinical social workers get started in private practice and provides them with survival tools required to run an efficient office. Documentation, billing codes, reimbursement, office software, developing a social media policy, and passing an audit are some of the important areas to be discussed. Bring your private practice questions and cases to share.
