GOMEZ ESTEBAN, Rosa. Psychotherapies and group clinical practice: central axes in training and healthcare programs. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2020, vol.40, n.138, pp.133-159.  Epub Feb 15, 2021. ISSN 2340-2733.

During their training, professionals must learn about different orientations of psychotherapy and their efficacy in order to give psychotherapy a more prominent role in our institutions. Given its ability to promote subjective changes, working with psychoanalytic psychotherapy is encouraged. A training program to accredit residents as psychotherapists is urged. The implementation at a general level of coordination programs between Mental Health Services (MHS) and Primary Care so as to sensitize both kind of professionals is proposed. Diagnostic evaluation, therapeutic indication, and crisis groups are recommended in order to facilitate the functioning of mental health centres. Group psychotherapies should be implemented in the clinical practice. In the same way, they should be included in the training programs approved by the Commissions of Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology. The paper ends with a synthesis and some proposals.

Keywords : psychotherapy; psychoanalytic psychotherapy; coordination programs; diagnostic evaluation and therapeutic indication groups; psychotherapy training; group psychotherapies.
