PMHNP growing a private practice, what book should I write?

  1. I'm going to be joining a practice that specializes in PTSD. Maybe a PTSD book would work well for that clientele. I know a great place to drop off copies of a book that would draw in some business. There is already a strong pipeline of potential patients through the group's connection with a local mental health hospital, and they have a backlogged waitlist.

    Then again, I'm located in the Pacific Northwest. I could probably drum up a lot of business with a book concentrating on SAD. That might be a good application of my training.

    Dual diagnosis is kind of played out here. There are a ton of facilites for that. ADHD might be a good one to focus on with group therapy sessions being a part of how to gather potential patients together for mutual support

    What do you think? SAD or PTSD? I'm not sure which one would bring in more clients.

    An informational booklet? Or a book book with lots of pages and a publisher?

    I also have to add this. I hope this bumps it up so someone more helpful than I can give you a real answer.

    I think if you're going to do something, do something you're passionate about. Write about something you're passionate about. Draw in clients that you're passionate about.

    I'm a PAC NW'er too, and I vote for SAD. It's a frequent companion up here thanks to our perpetually grey skies during the fall, winter, and spring. Oh, and it complicates the h*!! out of my bipolar.
