This paper reports on the findings of a survey of social workers in private practice from two regions of the country.
Given recent changes in the mental health care marketplace, the study sought to ascertain the respondents'original motivations for entering private practice, the current nature of their work, and the satisfactions and challenges they now find in this practice setting.
Special attention is given to the degree to which third party reimbursement affects respondents'practice, and the strategies they use to address reimbursement restrictions.
These findings, and the respondents'advice for those considering private practice all illuminate the current state of this form of social work and offer a foundation for addressing emerging problems.
