Competency in Combining Pharmacotherapy and Psychotherapy: Integrated and Split Treatment, by Michelle B. Riba and Richard Balon, American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc., Washington, DC; London, England, 2005, pp. 156, $35.95.

Review by:
Joseph R. Silvio, M.D.

This book is one of five in a series entitled “Core Competencies in Psychotherapy,” edited by Glen O. Gabbard, MD, for American Psychiatric Publishing. The series is intended to provide psychiatric residents and residency faculty with instructional texts to assist in the acquisition of competencies in the five types of psychotherapy that the Psychiatry Residency Review Committee felt every psychiatric resident should learn. The five forms of psychotherapy are long–term psychodynamic psychotherapy, supportive psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral psychotherapy, brief psychotherapy, and psychotherapy combined with psychopharmacology. Competency in each of these therapeutic modalities is measured by the six organizing principles of medical education adopted by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education: patient care, medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, practice–based learning and improvement, professionalism, and systems–based practice. Establishing measurable core competencies for all areas of medical education has been part of the effort to comply with a mandate from the U.S. Department of Education that all educational projects have to demonstrate the ability to assess outcome.

That being said, Competency in Combining Pharacotherapy and Psychotherapy: Integrated and Split Treatment by Riba and Balon seems to achieve its goals in every way. It is a primer for beginning residents in need of clear instructions on how to manage getting from point A to point B with new patients. It is a guideline for residency faculty for planning courses that will met ACGME requirements for accreditation based on stated goals for competencies and criteria for measuring outcome. It is a study guide for both in assessing progress in the acquisition of necessary clinical skills.
