Registration Information:
Advanced registration is required; there is no same day registration.
Early registration is encouraged: Previous Private Practitioner Day events have sold out quickly. With a maximum attendance of 65, we encourage early registration so that you are not closed out of the event.
This event is open to LCSWs only. We regret that we cannot accommodate non-LCSWs at this event. This event is geared towards the solo private practitioner, and will not address the concerns of group practices. Please feel free to contact Private Practitioners Group chairperson Lynne Spevack with any questions or concerns.

Registration is for the full day only; you cannot register for individual workshops. While we anticipate that many clinicians will want to make the most of the day by attending all of the day’s workshops, each workshop is designed to stand alone.


The meeting location will be provided at the conclusion of registration. Please remember to take a screen shot of or print that last page for your records.


Your willingness to use our online registration system is appreciated. If you require registration assistance you may contact the chapter at 212-668-0050 during business hours.
