APA Handbook of Clinical Psychology, Vol. 5., Education and Profession, 1st. edition
Michael Helge Rønnestad har sammen med David E. Orlinsky og Hadas Wiseman skrevet kapittelet "Professional development and personal therapy" i J. C. Norcross, G. R., VandenBos & D. K. Freedheim, (Eds.) APA Handbook of Clinical Psychology, Vol. 5., Education and Profession, 1st. edition
In this chapter, the authors present an overview of research, theory, and practice on the development of clinical psychologists, primarily in their role as psychotherapists, and of the ways in which personal therapy contributes to their growth. Methodological and conceptual perspectives on psychotherapist development are discussed with a specific focus on the distinction between professional role identity and role performance. Two large scale empirical studies on psychotherapist development are described in more detail [i.e. the Minnesota study of therapist and counselor development (Rønnestad, M. H. & Skovholt, T. M., 2013, The developing practitioner. New York: Routledge); The Society for Psychotherapy Research-Collaborative Research Network international study of the development of psychotherapist (Orlinsky, D. E. & Rønnestad, 2005. How psychotherapists develop. Washington, DC: American psychological Association)]. The chapter concludes with recommendations for future research and for how to enhance professional development and personal therapy.
