|Beitragstitel||Training in CAPP in Turkey and in Switzerland - differences and similarities|
To compare the scientific and didactic concepts, institutional methods, underlying values and practical aspects of two educational and training programmes in CAPP in order to identify differences and similarities, as well as mutual possibilities to improve the concepts.
The following three approaches were taken:
1. In a head to head-comparison the following categories were analysed:
Basic ethical and value-oriented concepts, length of training, schedules, training methods, role of psychotherapy, social psychiatry and psychopharmacology, interdisciplinary approaches etc.
2. Institutional aspects of two well-established specialist training centres (University of Izmir/Turkey and Luzerner Psychiatrie, Switzerland) were critically compared as examples of good practice.
3. The individual experiences of two of the authors were integrated in a qualitative way.
Although Turkey and Switzerland have disparate training programs in CAPP, there are many similarities, in particular with regard to basic values, scientific approaches and nosology. The practical education and real clinical procedures differ due to the regional disparities.
European endeavours to standardise and homogenise CAPP-training programmes such as by UEMS and by international scientific exchange (by ESCAP for example) have led to a good comparabilty of training options for young colleagues in our field, even if the specific countries have distinctive traditional, political and clinical systems.
