Notes on the Path to Competence: Comments on Ridley and Colleagues' Major Contribution
Hatcher, Robert L.
Counseling Psychologist, v39 n6 p887-896 Aug 2011
Focusing on the challenges of training counseling psychologists, Ridley and colleagues offer in this issue a review and critique of microskills training, the dominant training model in counseling psychology graduate programs. Recognizing the role of higher order cognitive and affective functions in expert practice, they propose a hierarchical model of considerable complexity. In these comments, the author offers some thoughts about their model in light of the range of roles and interests that competency models serve, the definition of competence, and the idea of metacompetency.
