Teaching psychiatric interview techniques to family doctors
The present research measured the interview techniques of 12 trainee family doctors who made inaccurate assessments of their patients’ degree of psychiatric disorder, and offered them 4 sessions each of teaching based on acquisition of a simple model and videotaped feedback in an attempt to modify their interview techniques.
England: University of Manchester
The main aims of the teaching is to help students to appreciate the importance of psychological factors in the diagnosis and treatment of all illness, and to realise that attention to a patient's psychological adjustment may be important even where physical illness is paramount.

Training clinical teachers in psychiatry to teach interviewing skills to medical students
It is concluded that with only brief training unselected clinicians can become effective teachers of essential interviewing skills and feedback training in such skills can be incorporated into existing curricula without major disruption of other requirements.
