Did you know that you are REQUIRED to have a Professional Will?
Most clinicians aren’t aware that their Ethics Codes require them to have a plan in place for the disposition of their practices in the event of an unplanned absence.  Every guild and professional organization for mental health professionals expects its members to have at least the equivalent of a Professional Will.   Click Here to read more about The Therapist’s Professional WillTM: Managing Planned and Unplanned Absence.

Taking this course will jump-start you on the path to gain peace of mind.  Knowing that you have done everything possible to assure continuity of care for your patients/clients is a gift for everyone.
