When a mental health practitioner joins or forms a group practice, an infinite number of complex issues must be addressed. These include an array of personal, professional, and business decisions. The aim of this chapter is to review some of the more common questions that arise when joining or creating a group practice. These topics include the fit between the individual and the group along a variety of dimensions, including the composition of the group, its legal and operational structures, the market position and growth opportunities for the practice, the developmental phase of the group, and conflict management within the group. The roles of consultants to assess the legal and financial health of the group are also reviewed.
