This highly interactive and practical workshop will focus on transformational and communitarian approaches to training and supervision in professional psychology. This workshop will emphasize ethical issues bearing on relationships with trainees and strategies for preparing for career-long competence. In contrast to current training cultures that tend to exclusively emphasize individual responsibility for attaining and continuously assessing competence, a communitarian approach tends to also emphasize the salience of collegial engagement and compassion in preserving competence. This workshop will blend didactic presentation, case vignette analysis, and strategic discussions. The workshop will conclude with numerous concrete strategies for implementing a communitarian training culture and stimulating more transformational trainer-trainee relationships.


As a result of attending this training, participants should be able to:
  • Describe the salient ethical issues related to assessing and preserving competence.
  • List the attributes and behaviors of a transformational training psychologist.
  • Explain some key components of a communitarian training culture.
  • Articulate the mechanisms by which a training psychologist might prepare trainees for maintaining career-long professional competence in practice that leads to excellent clinical care.
