THE THERAPIST WRITER: Helping Mental Health Professionals Get Published by
Once upon a time, most licensed mental health practitioners were in private practice. As economic times got tougher, many therapists ramped up business by specializing in niche markets, becoming the go-to experts on bi-polar disorder, acting-out teens, or post-partum depression. Others focused on teaching or doing workshops. When managed care rolled over the country, many therapists jumped on the bandwagon and got themselves on panels as providers, only to end up feeling frustrated with their managed care experiences (such as low fees and inconsistent referrals and reimbursements) so they looked around for newer and more creative ways to pep up their practices. One thing that many professionals have discovered is really good for business is writing a book. And theyve learned its definitely doable. Thats what The Therapist Writer is all about: Helping therapists through all phases of writing a book and getting it published. Unlike general books on writing, The Therapist Writer addresses issues specific to mental health professionals, such as writing about clients and the sensitive issue of confidentiality. Examples given are related to the therapists world.
