Quarterly networking for psychologists, psychiatrists, LSWs, LPCs, LMFTs or Psych MSNs who have a full or part time private practice in Philadelphia or surrounding suburbs. We meet for lunch or dinner in Chestnut Hill. The days of the week rotate and are chosen by poll. The purpose is to network, connect, off set the isolation of pp and informally discuss pp related topics. Format: after introductions, we sit at 4-5 smaller tables of 6 ish to allow interaction on topics we each choose. Members volunteer to facilitate the informal discussions. Previous topics included Mindfulness, Marketing Ethics, EFT, DBT, Exposure Therapy, MI, Medication update, the Biz of PP, Holistic approaches, working with LGBT couples.
This group is not affiliated with any person or business. We meet in a neutral location. Private practice can be isolating so we use this platform to share the experience and info on what works with other professionals.
Members MUST be licensed and in active verifiable full or part time private practice. Members must provide their PP location and contact info (full PP address/phone no/last name) on their profile along with a photo of themselves. Please respect our criteria. Do not attempt to join until you are licensed and in an active verifiable PP seeing clients. Sorry, no exceptions.
Many members are unable to attend the meetings, however, they join to connect with others and use the discussion forum to post appropriate PP related info such as groups or office space.
While members are encouraged to post and announce info such as upcoming workshops, etc. this is not set up as a marketing group. We are here to get to know one another as stated above. Over time cross referrals may naturally occur but its not our primary purpose nor should the group emails or list be used to market anything including your services to members nor to promote another meet up group.
We are here to share the joys and challenges of Private Practice in psychotherapy, to learn, and just hang out. Welcome.
