  2. The relationship between the physical body and the psychosocial world.
  3. A clear discussion of case examples using the internalized other method.

Posted by on Apr 6, 2012 in Professional Continuing Education for psychologists | 0 comments

Length: 2 Hours
Credits: 2.00

Presenter: Lynn Grodzki, LICSW

According to a recent national survey, twenty percent of all therapists in private practice are leaving the field each year, due in part to their inability to operate a practice profitably. At the heart of a successful psychotherapy private practice is the therapists ability to generate an abundance of quality referrals. This workshop offers an innovative model of the top business strategies that generate referrals for a therapy practice outside of managed care, drawing on independent research of the methods of successful therapists, tested business ideas that work well in today’s marketplace, and the presenter’s considerable experience coaching hundreds of therapists to build profitable practices.

Goals and Objectives:

Participants will learn to:

  1. Articulate your “basic message,” the essence of what you offer as a therapist
  2. Avoid promotion and selling yourself — the marketing that doesn’t work for therapists
  3. Adopt “relational” marketing that educates and engages new clients
  4. Apply dozens of specific referral strategies, including how to: offer a “living brochure”; ask the universe for referrals; design your ideal client profile; become a cross trainer; and many more

planet-therapy.com offers audio streamed CEU workshops to professionals in psychology, family therapy, psychiatry, pastoral counseling, social work etc. Your workshop may vary in length from one to six hours, with the average length being two hours.

Recent statistics show that as of December 31, 2002, planet-therapy.com was being viewed by over 16,000 individuals each month. There is a potential learning arena of 500,000 licensed mental health professionals in the United States and Canada in need of CE’s. In addition, there are three times this number of unlicensed professionals and students as well as thousands of interested therapists in Europe, Scandinavia, Australasia and beyond.

Workshop Presenter Outline

Our intent is to make your CE workshop task fairly simple and easy. Here’s how. As a teacher, trainer and presenter you already have workshop outlines and handouts prepared from past presentations. I am asking that you read and discuss your already prepared notes into a quality recording digital tape deck. If you would prefer that I interview you for part of the workshop—this can be easily arranged.
As a Workshop Presenter you will need to provide:

  1. 1. A workshop in audio or digital cassette format of 1.5 – 6 hours in length. The recording needs to be high quality audio (a digital recording is best), and produced by using an external mike. Workshops of 4 hours or longer may be done as separate, two-part workshops. Please specify the length with us first.
    instructions: Read your workshop into a digital tape recorder, or tape a high quality workshop you are giving. As you move through your presentation we ask that you give the reader instructions regarding when to refer to particular handouts. These handouts will be available on-line in your presentation section. For example: “The five principles of mediation can be viewed in the handout labeled Handout #3.”
    Please note: You may, as some presenters have already done, send us an old workshop tape providing the audio is clear.
  2. A written summary (maximum of 50 words) describing the workshop.
    instructions: Similar to any workshop description you have presented in the past.
  3. A list of three to four objectives/goals of the workshop (what will be covered).
    instructions: Similar to the needs of any APA CEU approved workshop.
  4. Handouts sent to us in disk format (text, slides, overheads, etc. with written copyright clearance).
    instructions: One page handouts, etc. outlining the points you make in the workshop as you would in a face-to-face workshop. Label handouts and slides, etc. numerically in the order they will appear and be referenced in your presentation.
  5. A Post-test including 20 TRUE or FALSE questions.
    instructions: Questions pertain directly to your audio taped presentation and answers are found in the handout content.
  6. A current curriculum vita plus a 50 word biographical statement. A digital picture of yourself would be appreciated.
    instructions: Similar to any workshop vita and bio you have presented in the past. Send recent photo to be put up on site.
