Who are we and what we do?

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (CAP) WG is a section that brings together EFPT’s CAP related activities through diverse projects. It aims to help create a EFPT with more CAP visibility. It also strives to build and strengthen collaborations between CAP trainees and the overall European psychiatric community.

Our work focuses on;

–           Promoting CAP trainees within psychiatric community, European and globally

–           Supporting CAP trainees with their networking and professional development

–           Organizing projects that are of interest of CAP trainees

–           Maintaining strong relations with other fields of psychiatric training

Besides the annual meetings at the EFPT Forum, the working group gathers throughout the year via online meetings and communication is also maintained via e-mail.

Ongoing Projects:

Psychotherapy Survey – contact person Asilay Şeker (

Psychotherapy is suggested as a 1st line treatment options for many childhood mental health disorders. However, it is not easy to say that all European countries have a fully equipping curriculum for up and coming CAP specialists in terms of Psychotherapy. Psychotherapy Survey is a project to explore the training and practice conditions of psychotherapy among European CAP trainees and ECPs. The aim is to draw attention to needs and contribute to improvement in this field for CAPs.


Past Projects

Psychopharmacology Survey contact person Teresa Gomez Alemany (

CAP in GAP Survey – contact person: Anna Sofie Hansen (

It is a given that CAP trainees receive some theoretical and practical training in adult psychiatry, but the same is not true across all of Europe for CAP training for GAP trainees. The aim of this project is to map the current state of CAP training in GAP training programmes across Europe and to investigate if this matches the needs of GAP trainees. An online survey was constructed and disseminated. Data gathering is now terminated. Data analysis and paper writing are the next planned steps.
