Doing Clinical Research in Private Practice

As a therapist in private practice or starting a counseling practice you are on the front lines with clients. That gives you a unique window into seeing what is, and is not working with clients, and noticing themes. You may at one point consider confirming some of these hypotheses through research. While performing research while in school isn't easy, there is a LOT of support. Today we talk to Sarah who works for IntegReview IRB, an independent IRB that can work with therapists in private practice who want to design and launch research independently. Find out when to reach out, why to reach out, and how long it can take to get approved to launch clinical research in your private practice.

I have successfully built a cash pay psychotherapy practice from scratch on a shoestring budget. I have also failed a licensed exam by 1 point (only to have the licensing board send me a later months later saying I passed), started an online study group to ease my own isolation and have now reached thousands of therapists across the country, helped other therapists market their psychotherapy practices, and helped awesome business owners move from close to closing their doors, to being profitable in less than 6 weeks. I've failed at launching online programs. I've had wild success at launching online programs. I've made mistakes in private practice I've taught others how to avoid my mistakes. You can do this. You were called to this work. Now- go do it! Find some help or inspiration as you need it- but do the work!
