Summary "Over half of the clinical psychologists graduating each year come from professionally oriented doctoral programs in psychology. Therefore, the impact of the type of training those students receive is tremendous. Competency-Based Education for Professional Psychology presents the most up-to-date, research-based model for education in professional psychology. Based on more than 30 years of research and development by the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology, the model focuses on core competencies. The volume is divided into four parts. Part I presents an overview of the training model and discusses the theories and research that form the basis of the model. Part II describes the seven core competencies needed by professional psychologists: relationship, assessment, intervention, research and evaluation, consultation and education, management and supervision, and diversity. Chapters in this section discuss the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that characterize each competency and provide examples of proven curricula and teaching methods. Part III addresses the characteristics and key roles of faculty and administrators, and Part IV describes future challenges in professional psychology education. By providing methods for implementing the model in different educational and training settings, this book will serve as a key resource for everyone involved in the education, training, and regulation of professional psychologists"--Introduction.
