De ontwikkeling van de psychotherapie in de instituten voor psychotherapie
In this paper a short survey is given of the development of the Institutes for Psychotherapy in the Netherlands; the past development, the present and the future. Problems described are the increasing social need for psychotherapy and the corresponding growing need for more psychotherapists (in manpower and the diversity of skills), and the financial organisation (grants, the patients fee). These problems are illustrated by numbers. Also described are aspects of training in a growing diversity of skills, present and future, problems in research, the need for better indications and information. k can be expected that the instituten for psychotherapy will play an increasing role in the network of mental health facilities because psychotherapeutic methods are more and more including techniques like group- and familytherapy, short term psychotherapy and crisis intervention. The psychotherapist is coming out of his consultingroom. The multidisciplinary structure of an institute proven to be an optimal condition for the development of new techniques in close relation to increasing and changing needs in the community.
