I found this book very helpful as I'm a psychology student and I'm contemplating opening my own private practice in the near future.

This book is wonderful because it is detailed and offers a lot of information about everything one should know when starting a solo practice. It discusses how to perform market research; the importance of choosing the right location; and most importantly it talks about how to develop a business plan which is something every potential practitioner should have before opening their own practice.

There are a lot of things to consider, and unfortunately they are not the sort of things we learn about in grad schools; such as how to market yourself and your business.

It even has some examples of fee schedules, balance sheets, profit and loss statements, etc. This book is a great resource for anyone who is thinking about starting their own private practice in psychology.
