Endings and Closures: Professional Wills in the Psychotherapy Practices 

What if you weren't around tomorrow- temporarily or permanently?

Presented by Carolyn M. Bates, Ph.D

This 1.5 hour meeting will address both pragmatic and psychological considerations related to closing a psychotherapy practice or preparing for its closure in the event of a practitioner’s permanent disablement or death.


Through the use of lecture and discussion, participants will meet the following learning objectives: 

  • Be introduced to the concept of a professional will and know what items a professional will might include
  • Increase ethical understanding of how to address practice closure issues with clients and colleagues
  • Discuss the aspects of pragmatic and psychological closure that arise with the ending of a clinical practice
  • Discuss and contrast the issues that arise when closing a practice is anticipated versus when it occurs suddenly and without warning
