A model for an integrated psychotherapy service

  • Jeremy Holmes (a1) and Sally Mitchison (a2)
Abstract

A model psychotherapy service is proposed, integrated in the double sense of combining different psychotherapeutic modalities in a single psychological treatment service, and forging close links with general psychiatry. The four limbs of the service extend into supporting counsellors in general practice, providing psychotherapeutic input into the treatment of the severely mentally ill, managing patients with personality disorders, and supplying psychotherapeutic aspects of a liaison service. The advantages of this model in the current managerial climate are discussed.
