Chapter 12 reviews the applications of medical psychotherapies, including the relevant research evidence and requisite trainings involved, within the main specialties of psychiatry, covering general adult psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, psychiatry of intellectual disability, psychiatry of old age, rehabilitation and social psychiatry, psychiatry of addictions, and liaison psychiatry. The chapter describes the history of how the separate psychiatric specialties of medical psychotherapy emerged from within general psychiatry, to shape the role of today’s medical psychotherapist and to inform current practice, training, and research. The relationship between contemporary medical psychotherapy and each of the other psychiatric specialties is discussed in subsequent sections.
