The present paper investigates how clinical psychology students experienced their own learning process when participating in practical skills training during an introductory course in qualitative research methods. Mindfulness and active listening exercises were used as a pedagogic intervention to facilitate practical training in interview skills during the course. At the end of the course, the students (n = 45) were invited to reflect and write about their own process of leaning, and what they had learned after the course. The qualitative descriptions of the students’ learning experiences were investigated using a thematic analysis methodology. The following themes were identified across the responses of the students: 1) Being present in the interview situation, 2) Doing qualitative interviews in practice and 3) Seeing the challenges and possibilities of doing qualitative research. The findings are discussed in relation to existing theory, and potential implications for future teaching are discussed.
