The Royal College of Psychiatrists classifies group psychotherapy as required experience for psychotherapy training as part of general psychiatric training (Grant et al, 1993). This is defined as group experience in in-patient and/or out-patient settings, with an experienced co-therapist and/or supervision. Previous surveys estimate that the percentage of trainees gaining such experience ranges from only 9% (Arnott et al, 1993) to 58% (Hwang & Drummond, 1996). The limited duration of psychiatric training does not allow experience in all types of psychotherapy and trainees must therefore be selective in respect to their own training, depending on what is available.
