This chapter explores the challenges and benefits of developing a private practice that specializes in the treatment of trauma and abuse. It identifies key areas a clinician must consider in formulating a treatment approach with these clients. The chapter discusses the importance of understanding how to run a business and the clinician’s need to get beyond fears of asking for payment with these often-challenging clients in order to make a living. Concrete ideas for developing this interest into a niche practice are offered. Key resources are also presented.
