Abstract

The present study represented an attempt to define what individuals involved in the human service professions believe are the necessary personal and interpersonal skills required to demonstrate "clinical" or "non-academic" competence. Participants' opinions of the importance of these personality dimensions and interpersonal skills, as well as their perceptions concerning their assessment, teaching, and remediation were explored.
