A teaching package is described which aims to improve the management of somatization by general practice trainees. The package comprises a training videotape in which a model (described in the preceding paper) is demonstrated, together with material for paired role-play of new skills and small group videofeedback of consultations. Evaluation of the teaching package reveals that the skills can be effectively learned.
