The doctor–patient relationship and psychiatric out-patients

  • Sami B. Timimi (a1)
Extract

A trainee in psychiatry soon realises that one of the great differences between working in psychiatry and in other specialities is the presence of different working models, each with its own boundaries, which are often kept quite separate in clinical practice (see, for example, Straus et al, 1964). This naturally presents the newcomer with many dilemmas. In this paper I want to explore my own experiences in using psychodynamic approaches within the setting of a routine (medical model) psychiatric out-patient clinic.
