    Abstract

    Ten established general practitioners, eight of whom were also trainers, took part in a course designed to improve their psychiatric interviewing skills. Participants were instructed in the problem-based model with audiotape and videotape feedback of real consultations in a group setting. Although those attending were experienced practitioners with a particular interest in the management of psychological problems, evaluation demonstrated a significant improvement in their skills after training. It is suggested that trainers could be trained to provide a similar teaching experience for their own trainees.
