To Specialize or Not to Specialize


[Start a Business] This presentation will examine key questions surrounding the complex decision to specialize or generalize your private practice. Whether you are just starting your private practice or exploring ways to increase client flow, the question of specializing vs. generalizing is a complex one. If I specialize or identify as a generalist, will I lose clients who think I can’t help? Areas explored include; specific populations, issues treated, treatment methods, business practices, and developing a treatment team in an outpatient setting. The training will provide case examples, hands-on activities, and practical resources you can immediately use in your own practice setting.
