Building a Social Justice Informed Private Practice | Part 1: Foundation


This workshop is part one of a four-part series on social justice oriented approaches to offering private behavioral health services in a private practice setting. This section outlines the basic knowledge foundation social workers need to prepare to offer private outpatient behavioral health services. While we encourage participants to complete all four parts, you may also select those that best fit your needs and schedule.

This series will provide a foundational understanding of private and public behavioral health services so that participants are able to identify the skills needed to deliver outpatient services as a clinician with a social justice orientation. With increased access to behavioral health services through policies such as Health Care Parity and the Affordable Care Act, more community members with mild to moderate need for behavioral health services are seeking care and there is a greater need for non-public behavioral health care providers who deliver culturally-responsive and socially-just services.
