The bad financial news is no secret: since 2000, the self-pay market has sharply eroded for both new and senior therapists--from 44 percent of clients to 26 percent. Does this mean it's all over for private practice but the memories? Not at all, but therapists need to understand the "Big Picture"--economic and social trends now underway and what they mean for the future.

- What populations, training, and services are likely to provide the greatest opportunities for therapists in coming years.
