The Ethical and Effective Practitioner: Lessons for Private Practice

Friday March 31, 2017

Give an Hour and United Health Foundation are hosting a day of training on how to ethically and effectively operate your private practice. This conference is ideal for mental health providers who would like to open or grow a trauma-informed private practice, and anyone who is overwhelmed by ever-changing digital ethics.
