In an attempt to illuminate components of professional competence a multi-stage series of studies has led to a conceptualization of competence as holistic. A nuanced and complex interaction exists between meta-competencies and students’ and professionals’ actual performance in practice. Meta-competencies have been identified related to conceptualization of practice, intentional use of self, and ability to learn from an immediate review of one’s own practice. Recent research reveals each meta-competence to be grounded in a similar structure, that of a continuum with students’ and professionals’ reflections ranging from in-depth, rich, textured discussions to those that are more superficial, scant, and concrete. Across studies with a range of complex, multi-faceted, high stakes situations (for example, risk assessment in child abuse and suicide) the role of emotional regulation of students and of practitioners has emerged as central in their decision-making and performance.
