Offering community presentations is a great way to educate people about important mental health issues as well as a very effective way to promote your own psychotherapy private practice. Clinicians understand issues that matter in people’s lives and have strong communication skills, which means they have the potential to be excellent speakers. This chapter offers practical answers to questions psychotherapists frequently ask about giving community presentations. It describes how to pick a topic, how to find speaking venues, and how to figure out how much to charge. It also offers tips for engaging audiences, avoiding common speaker mistakes, and handling fear of public speaking.
