abstract

  • This article presents a postgraduate psychotherapy training curriculum that incorporates findings from the psychotherapy research literature. Prior training recommendations are reviewed, and selected references from the empirical literature form the basis of the discussion. Past guidelines have not always incorporated findings from this literature. A curriculum is presented as a first step toward making this connection. This curriculum was implemented at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, in the summer of 1995. The psychotherapy research literature can assist psychotherapy coordinators to design curricula that are challenging and that can provide the necessary skills future psychiatrists will need.
