Abstract

Within the field of clinical psychology, assessment of practitioner competency or competency achieved through training has received increasing emphasis over the last decade. Using the competency cube as a model, the current article articulates how competencies in clinical child psychology can be defined and applied to the clinical child psychology specialty area. Specifically, both foundational and functional competencies related to the practice of clinical child psychology are discussed. It is hoped that by detailing the application of the competency cube model to the practice of clinical child psychology, psychology professionals and the public at large may gain a better understanding of this specialty field and identify areas for growth and professional development.
