The mental health profession is guided by a sea of ethical principles. Many practitioners lack a good understanding of how ethics collide with best practice branding and marketing approaches. The goal of this presentation is to familiarize clinicians with best practice marketing and branding standards, outline the ethical standards that exist around marketing private mental health practice, and creating how to market a mental health brand that subscribes to ethical standards and attracts your ideal client on a consistent basis.
Acknowledging the Elephant: Bringing the Power of Your Story Into the Clinical Space Date: Friday, Dec 8th, 9am - noon Location: Holy Covenant United Church of Christ 3501 West W.T. Harris Blvd. Charlotte NC 28269-8510 Presenters: Nicole Madonna, LCSW Earn 3 Credit Hours Fee: $35.00 Mental health clinicians are often taught not to share their personal stories with clients. By harnessing the power of your own personal story within the ethical boundaries of your profession, we can impact our clients in many meaningful ways. In this workshop, clinicians will learn when this works and when it doesn’t work, as well as explore theoretical approaches that support the use of self-disclosure in sessions.
