Because there is no uniform treatment, it is obvious that everything psychotherapists say and do depends on their view of a patient. The ability to develop a working model of patients' problems is generally not as good as desired. Even experienced therapists often have difficulty developing sufficiently complete and useful case conceptualizations. It is argued that this is partly due to traditional psychotherapy training models, which are considered insufficient. In accordance with research on expertise, the authors favor an individualized training procedure with concise and intensive feedback. A computer-supported approach makes such training affordable. An evaluation of the program completed by psychotherapy trainees shows good acceptance and a clear improvement in the ability to cover the relevant aspects of a case conceptualization.
