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