Abstract

The chapters in this volume were chosen to provide an introduction to the development of research skills by psychiatric residents and postdoctoral fellows in psychiatry and to focus on basic research principles and background information with which a trainee in psychiatry should be familiar. Overall, the emphasis is on cognitive skills, such as the development of certain attitudes or ways of thinking about scientific problems, and also on the acquisition of specific technical skills and background knowledge necessary for a critical reading of the literature and the beginning of independent research. In a sense, this volume provides the reader with material relevant to what one might call the curricular or formal aspects of training.
