Psychotherapy Guidelines

The Guidelines for the Practice of Psychotherapy by Physicians

These Guidelines were written by the MDPAC Professional Development Committee Guidelines Task Force through a process which included a literature review, consultation - both internal review within the MDPAC and external review, followed by revisions. Recommendations include aspects of training, supervision and self care of the physician psychotherapist and professional conduct in practice: understanding boundaries and record-keeping. These were approved by the MDPAC Board in April, 2010.
