Opportunities and challenges of rural practice: managing self amid ambiguity

Opportunities and challenges of rural practice: managing self amid ambiguity

Journal of Clinical Psychology 66(5): 549-561

Living and practicing psychology in a small, rural community has opportunities and challenges. We describe the context of rural communities and identify several of those challenges and opportunities. A case study demonstrates the influence of multigenerational involvement, complex professional and social situations, and the potential difficulties facing the responsible clinician. We suggest both a theoretical perspective and specific procedures for treating prototypical cases in a rural practice.
