Author Quotes

The first stage of training is the knowledge-based stuff-psychopathology, psychopharmacology, do you know your stuff, the basics?

[for case histories] I would recommend you contact psychiatrists who are writing medico-legal reports-civil ones are particularly good because you’re looking at case histories that you may be coming across, as opposed to forensic, specifically criminal ones.

Don’t wait for the final bit to start writing your case history–have a look at lots of them.
