Private Practitioners Chapter is founded on the ideology of embracing and providing support to private practitioners. The aim of this session is to create a dialogical space where members who are in or considering being in, private practice will learn about diverse best practices through a cultural sensitivity lens and have an opportunity to network. As Linda Bovolotto (2012) has thoughtfully put it, as we progress in our own professional development, our ability to help others will mature (Spring 2015 Private Practitioners Newsletter, p. 9). To achieve this, we as private practitioners need to gain the relevant knowledge and skills in relation to this year's conference theme: Unpacking for Equity's Sake. During the session, participants are also encouraged to identify and anticipate ways in which Private Practitioners Chapter can help creatively and effectively meet the needs of private practitioners. Upon completion of the session, participants will gain insights about best practices around working with diverse others, embrace cultural diversity and sensitivity, and celebrate the journey of being a private practitioner.
