    Article - En anglais

    Social workers in private practice are increasingly confronted with the challenge of how to provide appropriate services within the parameters of what will be reimbursed by a fiscal third party.

    This article reports on a 1992 study, which examined the nature and prevalence of dilemmas experienced by private practitioners.

    The survey and interview findings indicafe practice effects in the clientele selected for treatment, the diagnoses assigned, the length, frequency, and modality of treatment, and the collateral services rendered.

    Practitioners also evidenced ethical and personal dilemmas as a result of reconciling practice decisions with third party parameters.
