Page code for insert record that has a select list wiht multiple options from field

Hi - Sorry - this will be a lot of code.
I am building a system whereby members can add-update-delete their profile. They are social workers.
- For admins (which will be retooled for members), we start on the member list page.
- From there we go to manage various aspects of their profile: contact info, addresses and info about their private practice and the issues they treat.
- There are about 10 areas regarding their private practice, each with anywhere from 1 to 30 potential options within each.
- I want to have the practice items in one table, with the multiple select options held within one field.
- I will need to be able to add and update these fields dynamically.
- I will also need to be able to do a text search (using data-assist search feature) to find any component within this field (all text).

---- Start here: member_list.php
All admin forms can be reached from right column for member record.

---- Member practice insert (add record) before any hand coding:
WA - no hand-altered code yet. I designate that the select option field allow for multiple options, yet only one gets entered.

---- Member practice insert (add record) before any hand coding:
DW - no hand-altered code yet. I designate that the select option field allow for multiple options, yet only one gets entered.

---- Member practice insert (add) record using implode function as suggested by Jason:
For DW behavior: practice_addDW_implode.php?memberID=3

For WA behavior: practice_addWA_implode.php?memberID=3

The DW behavior gives the header error messages, and the WA behavior just doesn't do anything.
