About Deliberate Practice

Deliberate practice, an evidence-based method for increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of therapist development and skill acquisition, is one of the hottest topics in psychotherapy today. Tony and Alex will teach us about the theory and principles of deliberate practice and how it can enhance our clinical skill development for all levels of clinical experience.

SEPI’s deliberate practice webinar is based on the upcoming American Psychological Association Press's book series "The Essentials of Deliberate Practice", and the published books, "Deliberate Practice for Psychotherapists", "Mastering the Inner Skills of Psychotherapy: A Deliberate Practice Handbook", and the edited volume "The Cycle of Excellence: Training, Supervision, and Deliberate Practice". Free resources on Deliberate Practice are available at the Deliberate Practice Institute here:
