Psychiatric Psychotherapy Training - General Issues

Psychotherapy is one of the key components of all Psychiatry training but varies considerably between settings.

The RANZCP stipulates key psychotherapy curriculum elements, accredits training courses such as the TPEA courses and others, monitors and examines progress but neither runs nor endorses any particular course content.

The Psychotherapies website provides links & basic information about any psychotherapy training courses suitable for Psychiatrists while endorsing and carrying The Psychotherapies Education Association courses in particular.

TPEA psychotherapy courses are RANZCP accredited and are specifically designed, written and monitored in accordance with the RANZCP curriculum for Advanced Training in the Psychotherapies.

The TPEA Core psychotherapy course is the only NSW course that meets the RANZCP mandatory core requirements which must be completed along side other Institutions’ accredited courses.
