Meet Up for Private Practitioners
Feeling isolated? We have planned a Meet Up on Thursday during lunch for Private Practitioners to gather information, share ideas, and exchange business cards. At the Meet Up there will be copies of law notes available, information about insurance, and you will have the opportunity to dialogue with a local attorney who specializes in serving behavioral health care providers as well as billing specialists. This will be an informal time to gather those nuggets that you can take back to your practice.

Helton, LISW-S, ACSW, Cleveland State University School of Social Work, as they share their stories about their journey toward getting published.
