General Questions

Skillsetter is an online skill building system for instructors and learners of classes where interpersonal skills can improve outcomes. Our revolutionary system uses the science of deliberate practice to improve these skills in a way that is proven to create more effective interactions. Please note that Skillsetter was previously called Theravue. Learn more.

Skillsetter is designed and built exclusively for training that involves interpersonal skills from a wide range of disciplines including psychology; psychiatry, clinical counseling and social work to all aspects of corporate skills training. Skillsetter is designed to fit any organization size and can easily meet the needs of institutions, companies and organizations, government agencies, training professionals, teachers and instructors.

Skillsetter is based on over 30 years of research by our Chief Scientist Dr. Bruce Wampold of the University of Wisconsin. Our interactive system uses the science of deliberate practice to improve effectiveness and outcomes of interactions between people. Here’s how it works:

  1. The learner is shown a brief pre-recorded video of an actor portraying a relevant interaction, such as a client in therapy.

  2. Using a web camera, the learner records a response to the video as if they were in the same room as the character.

  3. The Skillsetter system then provides the learner with a set of guided feedback questions and an opportunity to re-record the response. The learner then submits the video for further evaluation by the course instructor or teaching assistant.

We created some quick videos that walk you through how it works. View walkthrough videos.
