Report Writing

The teaching of report writing is a key component of the Division’s Fellowship Program, and the scholarly development of psychiatric report writing has been a key part of the Division’s academic output. Areas of recent interest have included the use of narrative in report writing and issues surrounding confidentiality. The Psychiatric Report: Principles and Practice of Forensic Writing was edited within the Division and faculty of the Division contributed to 14 of its 20 chapters. The book was published in 2011.
