I’m very excited that my work with Drs. Cribbet (Alabama) and Schmidt (Texas Tech) has been accepted for publication in Training and Education in Professional Psychology. In it, we sampled from 16 APA-approved doctoral programs in clinical and counseling psychology (8 each) to pilot our upcoming national study on assessment training and competency. This is the first published project which examines trainee exposure and competency (both perceived and performance-based) on personality assessments and we are excited for the next phase of this project. For the national study, Pearson Clinical Assessment has partially funded that project.
In the paper we discuss various training implications that we see as a result of patterns of instrument exposure, self-perceived competency, and result reporting information.
