GOMEZ ESTEBAN, Rosa. Training in group psychotherapy. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2019, vol.39, n.136, pp.117-142.  Epub Sep 21, 2020. ISSN 2340-2733.

There is a lack of development in psychotherapy, particularly in group psychotherapy, in mental health services in Spain. The training of our psychiatrists and psychologists in group psychotherapy is of great importance, since it is a first-line treatment choice in the case of mild and moderate psychopathology, and also in the severe one, combined with psychotherapy. On the other hand, it allows to deal quickly and effectively with the subjective suffering of the population we serve, and is the only therapeutic strategy capable of meeting the needs of the large number of people that seek our help. We propose a training program in group psychotherapy, using group methodologies in both supervision and training, and formulate a series of proposals to improve the training of our professionals.

Keywords : Psychotherapy; Group psychotherapy; Training; Supervision; Group methodologies.
