We explore the science “cluster” competence, which is broadly comprised of two components: Scientific Knowledge and Methods and Research and Evaluation. From randomized controlled trials, to effectiveness research, to the dissemination of empirically supported treatments, we underscore the necessity of this competence to the very foundation of clinical and professional psychology. We discuss the two dominant clinical training models (Boulder and Vail), describing how training toward competence in science/research, is fundamental to both models.
