Abstract and Keywords

The purpose of this chapter is to provide a framework for understanding how psychology educators and trainers can enhance gender competencies. The constructs of sex and gender are discussed, with a recognition that the literature has used these constructs in a confounding manner. Consistent with the multicultural literature, gender competence is defined based on its three components: gender knowledge, gender self-awareness, and gender skills. The theoretical and empirical literature is reviewed and gender competence is discussed in relation to education, or the direct, educative aspect of training, and psychotherapy supervision, the apprenticeship aspect of training. Case examples are provided as illustrations of the concepts considered.

Keywords: psychotherapy training, psychotherapy education, gender, sex
