Private mental health practice is a vibrant, thriving, and financially rewarding profession. And yet many who consider pursuing this path are misled by falsehoods, or myths, about private practice that can result in costly mistakes - or avoidance of this fulfilling and worthwhile career path. There is no need to market my practice, clients will find me. I learned everything I need to know about private practice in graduate school. I don't need an attorney or a CPA. Self-care is for students. But there is, you didn't, you do, and no, it most certainly is not. In If You Build It They Will Come, Jeffrey Barnett and Jeffrey Zimmerman dismantle many common misconceptions (myths) relating to the preparation, management, and ethics of entering and running a successful private practice in the mental health professions. Grouped into thematic sections, misconceptions are addressed briefly and succinctly. In addition to sharing accurate information to refute each myth, the book provides vital information on how to be successful in private practice. The authors identify common pitfalls and challenges, offering specific and practical strategies to address and move beyond the myth. Each chapter concludes with recommended resources and readings. Blending decades of clinical experience with practical no-nonsense advice about running a practice, If You Build It They Will Come helps fill the gaps in practice development training. Trainees and recent graduates of programs in clinical psychology, social work, and counseling will benefit from this book's personal, candid, and optimistic approach.

"It is the world's most famous skyscraper, a gleaming Art Deco tower of steel, concrete and marble that is the enduring symbol of New York. Conceived by Governor Alfred E. Smith, the project commenced on January 22, 1930, less than two months after the Black Tuesday stock market crash, as America entered the beginnings of the Great Depression. Along with the revealing text, a wealth of archival photographs taken before, during and after construction illustrate the mammoth undertaking. Every image pays tribute to the steelworkers, riveters, stone masons and the thousands of other unsung heroes whose fearlessness and skill enabled the tower to rise in little more than a year's time, and gave birth to a legendary icon of American vision and ingenuity."--Publisher.

Learn how to provide better service to distance information users! This book is the result of the conference held in May, 2004 in Scottsdale, Arizona, focusing on librarians' challenges providing service to nontraditional faculty and students. Respected authorities discuss in detail specific problems—and fresh strategies and solutions—to further promote service to distance information users. Each chapter tackles a particular issue such as collaboration outside the contributor's organization or how services can be monitored and assessed to gauge quality, and fully explains what can be done to address those issues. Each distinguished contribution was carefully selected by a 26-member advisory board using a juried abstracts process. Thorough bibliographies, useful figures, tables, and graphs provide accessibility and clarify ideas. Some of the topics in this book include: the promotion of library services to Native American students the planning and development process of a project to create a Web-based multi-media instruction tool for off-campus graduate students an examination of direct linking tools provided by major aggregators distance learning for the learning disabled distance learning implementation strategies for institutions course management software (CMS) and library services integration a survey of Association of Research Libraries offered services the do’s and don’ts of videoconferencing on and off-campus an eBooks collection study one-on-one research coaching via digital reference service an online tool that assesses students’ research skills and attitudes creating a library CD for off-campus students expanding student and faculty access to information services the collaboration with faculty on electronic course reserves developing assessment questions for services supporting off-campus learning programs providing secure off-campus access to library services beyond proxy servers and much, much more!
