Psychotherapy on a shoestring: improving training using existing resources

  • Stephen Paul Davies (a1)
Abstract
Aims and method

This article aims to describe qualitatively attempts in one NHS trust to improve psychotherapy training for psychiatry trainees, according to the Royal College of Psychiatrists' Guidelines, using existing multi-disciplinary resources.

Results

Training opportunities in a wide range of interventions were identified. A psychotherapy supervision group was established, and a psychotherapy training post was introduced for a trial period. The costs and benefits are discussed.

Clinical implications

Substantial improvements in psychotherapy training can be made using existing resources, even in the absence of a consultant psychotherapist. Flexibility and coordination are required.
