What can mental health professionals do to enhance their performance? Available evidence makes clear that clear that attending a typical continuing education workshop, specializing in the treatment of a particular problem, or learning a new treatment model does little to improve effectiveness. In fact, studies to date indicate clinical effectiveness actually declines with time and experience in the field. The key to improved performance is engaging in deliberate practice. In this address, the latest research on deliberate practice will be presented and translated into concrete steps all clinicians can immediately apply in their efforts to achieve better results.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain evidence showing that traditional training and the use of standardized treatments do not improve outcome;
  2. Define deliberate practice for psychotherapists;
  3. Identify three steps for implementing deliberate practice.
