This chapter proposes a generic, comprehensive, phase-specific schema or framework that can be used to think about psychotherapist development. To accomplish this task, it attempts to integrate information and insight from four separate sources: (1) specific ideas advanced by the contributing authors; (2) understanding of the available literature in the field; (3) ideas about psychotherapist development; and (4) a view of the current context within which psychotherapists develop and practice their craft. Following this presentation, the remainder of the chapter is devoted to a series of recommendations regarding: (1) the selection of candidates for psychotherapist training; (2) the optimal content for training programs in terms of (a) didactic preparation, and (b) the nature of clinical experiences; (3) therapist self-care; and (4) continued professional growth.

Keywords:   psychotherapist development, developmental phase model, candidates, psychotherapist training, psychotherapist self-care, continued professional growth
