Abstract and Keywords

Clinical theories have had a significant influence on professional psychology education and training, particularly in relation to psychotherapy. This chapter explores the contributions of four major theoretical orientations to psychology education and training: g the psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic-existential, and systemic traditions. The parameters specified by each theoretical system for the structure, focus, and processes of education and training are illustrated, along with their theoretically grounded perspectives on domains of professional competency. Next, attention is turned to examining emerging frameworks for psychology education and training that are grounded in models of psychotherapy integration. The chapter concludes with brief reflections on the potential for clinical theories to contribute to the articulation of emerging models of education and training in evidence-based psychology practice.

Keywords: psychology education, psychology training, theoretical orientation, personality theory, psychotherapy training
