Obtained questionnaire data from 41 graduates of 2 child psychiatry training programs over 13 yrs to elicit Ss' opinions of aspects of their educational experience. Ss rated parent counseling, management of psychotic children, and psychodynamic therapy as areas of high importance in training. Areas ranked as important but that were unavailable in training included group therapy and behavioral/cognitive therapies. The usefulness of the 2-way screen as an instructional aid and the centrality of teaching process of individual supervision were confirmed as being helpful experiences. Most Ss remembered time available for supervision and the expertise of supervisors as being satisfactory or very good. Comparisons are made about the patterns of practice of the graduates of both courses. ((c) 1997 APA/PsycINFO, all rights reserved).
