Deliberate Practice for Professionals 

"Candid, bold, challenging, and constantly tied to clinical reality, this engrossing and innovative book offers creative insights and valuable tools to help clinicians become more effective, irrespective of their theoretical orientation and level of experience.—Louis Castonguay, PhD, past-president of the Society for Psychotherapy Research

"In this remarkable book, Tony Rousmaniere combines a masterful command of the research literature with a brave, honest, and compelling account of his own struggles and growth as a clinician. This book challenges and inspires the reader to strive to be a better therapist, and provides practical suggestions for how to do so. It has already impacted how I practice and how I supervise."Catherine F. Eubanks, PhD, President-Elect, Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI)

"an essential guide for therapists for using DP to increase their expertise.”—Rodney Goodyear, PhD, past-president of the Society for Advancement of Psychotherapy  

“provides incredibly important information for trainees, practitioners, and supervisors across all levels of experience.”—Mark J. Hilsenroth, PhD, editor of the journal Psychotherapy

"In clear and entertaining fashion, Tony Rousmaniere reviews the latest research and lays out the steps for using deliberate practice to foster continuous professional development.”—Scott D. Miller, PhD, co-developer of Feedback Informed Treatment

"This book deals with an underdeveloped field of psychotherapy research, therapist development, in a very unique manner and both very personal and self-disclosing but also related to research evidence. Tony Rousmaniere explains the paths to competence and expertise as a therapist with all its ups and downs using a broad perspective and attracts trainees - and this is specifically striking – to learn from many other fields such as medicine and even the performing arts. This book provides an extremely valuable contribution to the field!” - Bernhard Strauss, PhD, past-president of the Society for Psychotherapy Research

“An absolute must-read for any aspiring psychotherapist!” — Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT, developer of PACT

"This book has important potential. Like Yalom, the book will benefit therapists in training, as well as professional therapists. The first person account is compelling. Deliberate Practice may be a beneficial “disruption” to traditional psychotherapy training." - Nick Ladany, PhD, Dean, UC San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences

Feedback from previous students: 
"This is a must-do training!! My take-away from this experiential workshop was deeply transforming. The focus on the therapist's "capacity" to tolerate countertransference activations was very helpful and my experience of role-playing my client offered me much deeper awareness, acceptance and self compassion about my countertransference blind spots. The experiential exercises enhanced tremendously my ability to stay present within myself despite countertransference distress & activation. This is the most direct & effective approach I have ever learned in dealing with countertransference activation 'in the present moment'."

"The depth of learning was truly remarkable in part due to the focus on developing our individual practice between sessions. Tony's warmth and thoughtfulness guided each of us on a unique journey, allowing us to bear the reality of our struggle with and yearning for learning and development. Personally, this course has enabled me to become more effective and authentic as a clinician, it has been a wonderful gift to myself and my clients!"

"I'd expected a dry class, focusing on behavioral aspects of implementing deliberate practice. Instead, I found an inroad to the unconscious. Thank you for introducing us to a process that builds capacity. You were a great teacher, freely talking about your experiences, which helped create a safe group."

"The support to put our self criticism to one side was fabulous. It was a remarkable opportunity to do this without it getting too deeply personal. The experience was personal and quite profound at times. It was warm and connected, therapeutic and enabling change, but was not therapy."
