Abstract

This current study had two goals:

1. To examine the changes in various performance measures
as residents progress through psychotherapy training
2. To explore correlations among various measures of psychotherapy
competence

Conclusions:

  • Resident self-assessment does not appear to reflect competence
    as assessed by supervisors, or knowledge as assessed by objective
    tests.
  • Global supervisor evaluations do not appear to reliably measure
    competence.
  • Standardized supervisor assessment instruments are needed.
  • Further work is needed to develop reliable, valid measures of
    competency.
