How to choose tapes for a CTA exam

Posted on November 26, 2012 at 5:04 PM Comments comments (91)
For those of you currently preparing for the CTA oral exam, here is an article on the topic of choosing a tape by Keith Tudor (EATA news, 2007, page 16). The author cautions us against over-adapting under the influence of unquestioned "received wisdom" about what constitutes a good tape. He believes that supervisors should respect the trainee's autonomy in this matter and take on a supportive rather than prescriptive role.

He goes on to discuss every criterion for what constitutes a good tape and stresses that the trainee should feel that the tape is representative of the way they work. If they work mainly relationally why feel pressured to show a piece of typical cognitive-behavioural interaction.
