Summary

Clinical psychologists may work in a variety of settings, but the challenges of working in private practice can be beyond the experience of a trainee. Thus the chapter outlines the conduct in a private practice. It describes the important role of promotion and community education to engage with key stakeholders. The chapter highlights the added value of an evidence-based approach to practice and quality improvement, as they improve accountability and allow the demonstration of effectiveness. The chapter discusses the impact of the need to monitor costs and to adopt a business mentality. It concludes by describing two models for maintaining research engagement while in private practice.
