Deliberate Practice Group Research Project

All members of the Pluralistic Practice Network are invited to take part in a group learning project over the course of the year. This involves collecting data from you, around your experience of deliberate practice, which I will analyse and write up as a published report.

The aim is to help the whole Pluralistic Practice community to learn more about how best to use deliberate practice to become a more effective therapist. The project involves:

  1. Using the ideas and suggestions outlined (and in the recommended reading) to engage in deliberate practice over the next few months.
  2. Keep a record of your deliberate practice work, by completing an entry on your Deliberate Practice Log whenever you spend time in this way.
  3. Taking part in a focus group or individual interview, and (optionally) submitting your DP log entries.

If you are interested in taking part in this project, please contact Julia McLeod at

For more information about deliberate practice and the research please see the documents below.
