FROM FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THE CHAPTER
The Private Practice of Psychology: It is the dream of most clinical psychologists to work in private practice. Some decide to do so only a few hours a week. Others take it on full-time. It is highly gratifying work to provide solutions that make a difference in the lives of others. But, it’s not enough just to want to help people. When you enter private practice, you are starting a business and assuming full responsibility for the well-being of the patients in your care, so prepare for this enormous responsibility.
ABOUT THE BOOK
This extraordinary four-volume work is the first of its kind, a comprehensive exploration of the obstacles black men and women, both historic and contemporary, have faced and overcome to succeed in professional positions. Voices of Historical and Contemporary Black American Pioneers includes the life and career histories of black American pioneers, past and present, who have achieved extraordinary success in fields as varied as aviation and astronautics, education, social sciences, the humanities, the fine and performing arts, law and government, and medicine and science. The set covers well-known figures, but is also an invaluable source of information on lesser-known individuals whose accomplishments are no less admirable.
