As I read the deliberate practice literature, I thought back to the conversations I had with my informal panels of master therapists—Allan, Patricia, and Jon—about their training regimens. Although none of them had mentioned the concept of deliberate practice, all had attributed their clinical expertise to (a) engaging in an intensive repetitive process of observing their own work, (b) getting feedback from experts, (c) practicing specific skills, and (d) assessing their outcomes—core elements of deliberate practice.
