Training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Psychiatry Residency: An Overview for Educators
Sudak, Donna M.
Behavior Modification, v33 n1 p124-137 2009
In January 2001, Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education accredited general psychiatry training programs were charged with the requirement to train residents in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to a level of competence. Programs were given the responsibility to delineate standards for trainees, to determine measures of competence, and to provide remediation for deficiencies in performance. Effective education in CBT in general and child and adolescent psychiatry residency training can be more successful when educators understand the barriers to implementation of empirically supported therapies (ESTs). Robust training programs in CBT must take into account cultural barriers to psychotherapy training and the educational demands placed on residents in adult and child and adolescent psychiatry. Resources for training and evaluation materials are available to training directors and teachers.
