Abstract
A survey study was conducted to examine the relationship between Deliberate Practice (DLP) and treatment outcome in psychotherapy. To date, only one study has previously examined this connection. The study was conducted at a university counselling centre at Lund University. 130 student therapists were asked what they do an average week to improve themselves as therapists. They were also asked about their motivation to conduct psychotherapy, their previous psychotherapy related experience and the quality of their supervision. The survey answers were compared with their treatment outcomes. 52 student therapists answered the survey. A relationship was found between the amount of discussed psychotherapy and treatment outcomes. Discussing... (More)

The survey answers were compared with their treatment outcomes. 52 student therapists answered the survey. A relationship was found between the amount of discussed psychotherapy and treatment outcomes. Discussing psychotherapy may vitalize psychotherapy and raise opportunity to exchange concrete experiences. This might benefit the treatment. The amount of previous credits in psychology at a university level was also related to treatment outcomes. Educational background may give the therapist a broad psychological knowledge and could deepen the understanding of human nature. This knowledge may benefit psychotherapy. More precise measurement of DLP within psychotherapy is needed in future research. DLP should be tested experimentally to give a clearer picture of its role for the development of therapist skills.

Abstract (Swedish)
En enkätstudie utfördes för att undersöka sambandet mellan Deliberate Practice (DLP) och behandlingsutfall i psykoterapi. Endast en studie i världen har tidigare undersökt detta samband. Denna enkätstudie utfördes på psykoterapimottagningen vid Lunds universitet. 130 studentterapeuter som bedrivit terapi på mottagningen tillfrågades om vad de gör en genomsnittlig vecka för att utvecklas som terapeuter. De tillfrågades även hur motiverade de är att bedriva terapi, deras tidigare psykoterapirelaterade erfarenhet och kvaliteten på psykoterapihandledningen. Studenternas svar på enkäten jämfördes med deras behandlingsutfall. 52 studentterapeuter besvarade enkäten. Studien hittade ett positivt samband mellan mängden diskuterad psykoterapi och... (More)

Studenternas svar på enkäten jämfördes med deras behandlingsutfall. 52 studentterapeuter besvarade enkäten. Studien hittade ett positivt samband mellan mängden diskuterad psykoterapi och behandlingsutfall. Att diskutera psykoterapi kan sannolikt levandegöra ämnet och ge ett utbyte av konkreta erfarenheter, vilket kan förbättra behandlingen. Mängden tidigare lästa högskolepoäng inom psykologi hade också ett positivt samband med behandlingsutfallet. Högskolepoäng inom psykologi kan tänkas ge terapeuten en psykologisk allmänbildning och fördjupade kunskaper om hur människor fungerar. Denna kunskap kan vara hjälpsam vid behandling. En mer precis mätning av DLP inom psykoterapi behövs i framtida studier. DLP bör testas experimentellt för att få en klarare bild av dess roll för utveckling av terapeutisk kompetens. (Less)
