Question description

An important competency model for you to become familiar with is the Developmental Achievement Levels of NCSPP. Within these competencies is the relationship competency. The relationship competency is foundational to all other competencies in professional psychology. Many of the skills and functions of a professional psychologist rely on the basic ability to form and maintain healthy relationships. Understanding this competency, along with the other competencies, is critical to obtaining a broad overall picture of what you need to learn in order to be competent at a basic professional level once you graduate.
