Authors Robyn Scherr and Kate Mackinnon want as many people as possible to have access to highly effective therapeutic work, which means having plenty of successful, skilled therapists to serve them. In creating their own successful businesses, the authors put their therapeutic training to use and found the same skills they employ with clients are vital to building a therapeutic business filled with integrity, consistency, and fulfillment.
Therapeutic work is not the same as other types of business. Often the issues that hinder practitioners' success are tied directly to the containers they hold, both the therapeutic container and what the authors call the Business Container. Elements of a Successful Therapeutic Business will inspire you to bring the clinical discernment, passion, and critical thinking you use in your practice to running your business. It provides a solid framework for you to reach the goals you set for yourself. You'll have the tools to map your own unique path to success as you define it.
Elements of a Successful Therapeutic Business is a focused exploration for practitioners in private practice who are dedicated to their own and their clients' growth and self-knowledge. What you will find here is an invitation to delve deeply to discover why you do what you do, who you are meant to serve and how to inspire them, and what makes you unique in your work. Following the book's Business Paradigm will take you on a courageous journey of discovery and accountability as you build a business that adapts, thrives, and grows with you.
