Private Practitioner’s Group
The Private Practitioners Group (PPG) provides a forum for social workers in private practice in which to exchange resources, learn from and support one another, and combat isolation and network, focusing primarily on the non-clinical aspects of private practice. PPG members get together “virtually” by email and in meetings. Over 500 PPG members correspond via an occasional, moderated e-mail “digest” containing members’ posts about locating resources, news pertinent to private practitioners, and an informative “Private Practice Tip.” Periodically, on the first Friday of the month about 25 members gather at the Chapter office for in-person meetings. Each meeting is freestanding, providing information about a specific topic such as practice building, navigating insurance, getting started in private practice, and tax preparation. LCSWs in part-time and full-time private practice and LCSWs contemplating beginning a private practice are welcome to join the PPG by contacting the chairperson, Lynne Spevack, LCSW at (718) 377-3400.
