    #11. The Edges and Leverages on Using Deliberate Practice Keynote Address

    #11. The Edges and Leverages on Using Deliberate Practice Keynote Address

    This is a keynote address given by Daryl Chow, Ph.D. for a virtual conference hosted by the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

    Cumulative evidence in psychotherapy suggests that we not only do not improve with experience, our typical professional development efforts by attending workshops, and engaging in clinical supervision do not lead to better performance. The aim of this keynote is to address the current cutting edge development of deliberate practice in psychotherapy, and its implications on how we can leverage to improve our outcomes.

    #9. A Hidden Discipline That Will Extend Your Mind: Developing a Personalised Learning System (PLS)

    #9. A Hidden Discipline That Will Extend Your Mind: Developing a Personalised Learning System (PLS)

    I believe one of the most critical things you can do is to create a personalised learning system (PLS).

    Though the payoff is not immediate, but like growing a seed, the benefit is tremendous, especially if you value personal and professional development.
    In this episode of Frontiers Radio, I take you down a road trip of my note-taking system, and why, after over 10 years, I'm now making a switch to an app call Obsidian.

    #8. There's a Really Good Reason Why We Need Adjustable Seats

    #8. There's a Really Good Reason Why We Need Adjustable Seats

    In the 1950s, A fairly unusual be-spectacled and slender Lieutenant Gilbert Daniels was tasked to solve one of the biggest problems in the US Air Force: Plane crashes.

    What he unravelled in the process holds a unique lesson for psychotherapists, and why we have been failing to implement and scale "evidence-based" practices as we try to fit the "average person" instead of the individual.

    #7. A Tribute to K. Anders Ericsson

    #7. A Tribute to K. Anders Ericsson

    We pay tribute to K. Anders Ericsson in today's episode. 
    He is known by many to be "the expert on expertise." His work, along with his colleagues had a profound impact on a wide array of professional domains such as sports, music, chess, and more recently in the field of psychotherapy. His four decades worth of research also informed the hugely popular book by Malcolm Gladwell, Outlier. (Though the "10,000hr" rule thing got misrepresented by others).
    ~~~
    In this episode, you'd hear
    - the impact he had on me personally.
    - the foreword that he wrote for our book, Better Results (co-authored with Scott Miller and Mark Hubble, APA, 2020), and
    - a short poem I wrote in Oct 23, 2010 that was dedicated to him. 
    Better Results book was also dedicated to Dr. Ericsson. 
    ~~~

    Show Notes:
    Peak by Ericsson and Pool
    Ericsson, Krampe and Teach-Römer's seminal article on The Role of Deliberate Practice in the Acquisition of Expert Performance
    The Music of Psychotherapy: Learning in a Wicked Environment (a blogpost I wrote  in Aug 2019 about my first encounter with Ericsson in Kansas City)

    Scott Miller's recent interview with Ericsson.
    A meta-analysis on deliberate practice by Macnamara et al. 2014
    Our reanalysis of the 2014 meta-analysis

    Music, Right in Front of Me, by Daryl Chow and produced by DC and Joel Louie.
