Abstract

The increase in the availability of biological therapies has led to a decline in the use of psychotherapy in treating psychiatric illnesses. As a result, opportunities for training in psychotherapy have declined. Yet, psychotherapy remains an important, and for some patients the only therapy. This paper discusses a systematic approach to psychotherapy training for postgraduate trainees in Psychiatry in Sri Lanka.
