Pediatric Psychiatric Supervision In Teaching of Residents

Abstract

Abstract MEDICAL educators have long recognized that the pediatrician is in a most unique position to utilize mental health concepts in his practice. By the very nature of his repeated contacts with the growing child and family he is ideally situated to guide them through problem areas and to identify psychological departures at the outset. An understanding pediatrician, well trained from a mental health viewpoint and with good relationships to child and parent, can become a potent force in the total development of the child. When he appreciates that the offering of psychological help can be a part of his function, and at the same time realizes the limitations of his training, he is better equipped to meet the demands of his practice. We do not imply by these statements that unanimity as to the role and areas of usefulness of the pediatrician in his community exists either among educators or References 1. Levy, D.
