Abstract
This current study had two goals: 1. To examine the changes in various performance measuresas residents progress through psychotherapy training2. To explore correlations among various measures of psychotherapycompetence Conclusions: Resident self-assessment does not appear to reflect competenceas assessed by supervisors, or knowledge as assessed by objectivetests. Global supervisor evaluations do not appear to reliably measurecompetence. Standardized supervisor assessment instruments are needed. Further work is needed to develop reliable, valid measures ofcompetency.
