A two year update of a regional survey of the training of junior psychiatrists in behavioural psychotherapy

  • Lynne M. Drummond (a1) and Ashok V. Bhat (a1)
Extract

In April 1987 the Bulletin of the Royal College of Psychiatrists published the results of a survey of the training of junior psychiatrists in behavioural psychotherapy in the South West Thames Region (Drummond & Bhat, 1987). This survey reported the experience of trainees based at 10 postgraduate teaching rotations in the Region. The survey was conducted shortly after the appointment of a new peripatetic senior lecturer. Prior to this appointment there had been no regular senior lecturer teaching in behavioural psychotherapy in the Region for at least one year. The paper demonstrated that the majority of trainees had received little or no previous teaching or supervision in behavioural psychotherapy. It also demonstrated that trainees welcomed the introduction of such teaching and that their knowledge of the subject improved significantly after three teaching sessions held at monthly intervals. However, after this short time only 17.1% of the trainees reported that they had started to use any of the techniques they had learned in clinical practice.
