Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The purpose of the present studywas to compare learning experiences perceived to contribute to service-delivery competence in sport, clinical, and counselling psychologists. Twenty psychologists (11 female, 9 male; 28–70 years of age participated in semistructured interviews. All participants emphasized the role of client interactions in learning service-delivery processes. In addition, clinical and counseling participants reported personal therapy and supervision as influential experiences. Applied implications for training include (a) regional supervision
networks comprising peers and elders, (b) university-based sport psychology clinics, and (c) personal and professional development groups.
