The efficacy of training in dynamic psychotherapy was assessed by sending a questionnaire to all visiting therapists (trainees) in the Leicester Psychotherapy Department. Questions were directed towards the effect of training on trainees' work in non-psychotherapy settings. Trainees noted improvements in communication skills, assessment/referral skills, anxiety and boundary management and overall management of the therapeutic relationship. Improvement was also noted in job satisfaction and motivation at work. These improvements were more prominent in trainees who had had more than two years' training.
