Training Needs in Psychotherapy

  • Malcolm Burrell (a1)
Extract

This paper offers some personal experiences and views of the training needs of specialist psychotherapy posts within the National Health Service, with some consideration of the needs of non-specialist trainees hoping to learn psychotherapy skills. There are many levels on which one can consider psychotherapy training needs, a most important one being to identify what techniques should be learned, in what depth, and over what period of time.
