The Royal College of Psychiatrists has stressed that psychotherapy skills are seen as a core element of psychiatric practice. To formalise this a new set of guidelines for psychotherapy training as part of general professional psychiatric training was published in November 1993. Concerns have been expressed over the implementation of previous guidelines from 1986. We have surveyed the psychotherapy training experience in our area and have worked with the psychotherapy department to address the findings. The future of training in the psychotherapies and implementation of the most recent guidelines are considered.
