This study examined the impact of an individualized admission procedure compared to a traditional procedure on students’ and supervisors’ perceptions of learning during psychotherapy training in professional psychology programmes. The study used a causal-comparative design where self-rating scale data measuring Psychotherapeutic knowledge and skills; Relation to the supervisor; and Relation to the supervision group were evaluated. Results suggested that students admitted based on the individualized procedure rated significantly higher on all components than those admitted the traditional way. Interviews as part of the admission procedures seemed to have a favourable influence on perceived professional development during the psychotherapy training.
