Originally, I developed this blog for my on “Building a psychotherapy practice,” for my Johns Hopkins graduate students in my courses in psychodynamic psychotherapy and building a successful private psychotherapy practice. However, I began hearing from psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors and social workers with questions. Here are answers to some of the questions that they asked.
How can I prepare myself for private practice
- A tripartite model of private practice development
- Considering starting a private psychotherapy practice? Here’s what the American Psychological Association has to say.
Establishing the therapeutic frame
- What is psychodynamic psychotherapy?
- What is psychoanalysis? And, what are the benefits of it?
- Developing the psychotherapy frame
- Lateness and “no shows” in the psychotherapy hour
- What is countertransference? Two meanings
- The clinician’s countertransference to the psychotherapy patient who comes late or does not show
- When the psychotherapist comes late
- Understanding the psychotherapy patient who comes late
- Dealing with silence in a psychotherapy setting
