Private Practice Specialty Practice Section

We are licensed clinical social workers who work in solo or group practice. Examples of areas of service: relationship problems, depression and other mood disorders, chronic mental illness, anxiety disorders, antisocial behavior and personality disorders. 

From Private Practice Section Connection:

"What are ethical considerations for private practitioners when engaging in social justice and public advocacy? How does a social worker address participation in social justice issues that may be in direct conflict with the values, beliefs, and opinions of his or her individual clients?
