Marketing Your Practice

Graduate degrees in the helping professions don't include courses in business and marketing. Despite the fact that 50% of professionals say they want to set up a private practice at some point in their careers!

Clients need to know you exist. And you need to make sure you're marketing. And you also want to feel good about the way you present your serices. So much of marketing seems...well...sleazy. So what then?

At the end of this 4-week program you will:

  1. Establish your primary and secondary target markets
  2. Develop problem and solution statements directed at your clients
  3. Understand the literacy level necessary to comunicate with clients and implement this knowledge on your website
  4. Learn how to market your services and feel comfortable and confident in the process
  5. Create a basic tool kit for marketing in person, in print and online.

Course fee is $399 CDN

Self-Care in the Online World

All of us know about self-care. All of us know we should sleep 8 hours, and eat well, and meditate, and limit our use of marijuana, alcohol and caffeine. We all know it would be good to keep a journal and see a therapist in times of need and maintain a supportive group of friends. We all know.

But if the pandemic taught us anything, it is that the old ways that "we all know" aren't always enough. Online environemnts put different strains on us. The impact of these distance cousnelling tools changes the clinical experience for us and our clients.

There is more to self-care in the online world than what we have previously been taught. Join us for this two-week fully online course.

Course fees are $199 CDN.
