    The service of paediatric psychotherapy to a general paediatric outpatient clinic is described. Using techniques developed to suit paediatric patients a median of nine patients each clinic were treated. Referral symptoms resolved in a median time of four months after a median of seven sessions. This model for the management of paediatric patients with emotional and behavioural difficulties may allow an effective and efficient use of psychotherapy time.
