The paper reminds me of the dilemmas students face when they write their clinical qualifying exams in our doctoral program. In these papers, students have to demonstrate both their clinical competencies and their dexterities with theories of change by juxtaposing a personal theory of change with the events of one of their therapy cases. In this benchmarking exercise, they need to show that they have expertise in both practicing therapy and escribing/explaining/interpreting their own therapeutic practice. In other words, the students need to demonstrate that they have reached a certain level of reflective practice which must be assessed in the quality of both their walk and their talk and the coherent relationship between the two.
