Private Practice and Public Practice: How Different Are They?
Worthington, John
In a discussion based on the Queensland Guidance and Counselling Association Code of Ethics, some of the issues which pose additional challenge for the private counseling practitioner are highlighted. Key points raised reflect a client-centered approach, substituting the public practice employer's organizational structure with the entity of the practice. It is suggested that professional supervision may need to come from a range of professionals to ensure a balance, and that professional and management issues need to be separated. When differences arise between the public and private practitioner's view of clients' needs, communicating positively with colleagues remains an ongoing challenge. The paper concludes with cautions for practitioners to consider before setting out in private practice. (Author/LSR)
