Book recommendation for formulation

Hello all

I am looking for a good book or two on formulation in clinical psychology - something really practical and easy to access that can be used alongside work with clients.
Does anyone have any recommendations please?

Many thanks!

Re: What happens post offer?

Hey For our course the NHS trust employing us did further checks to cover the past 3 years so we had to provide dates / employer details / referee names for every position held within that period. They do quite extensive checks in terms of right to work in UK, DBS etc...but nothing you wouldn't expe...

Re: Reserve lists for places

Just to say I'll be declining a place at Essex so the reserve list will be moving! :-)

Re: The Great Big PhD Tea-Sympathy-and-Celebration Thread

Hello all I am new to this thread but think it's a great idea! It's quite a lonely process so any support is always a positive. I'm exactly half way through my PhD, got my upgrade from MPhil to PhD quite soon - and in the middle of recruitment - so all a bit hectic. I had supervision today and am re...

Re: Has anyone completed a PhD before applying for the DClin

Thank you DrP, that is really useful. I have decided to take a year out now regardless - I am moving house and all sorts, so don't want the added pressure of launching into a PhD straight away. However, I am pretty confident that it is the route I want to take. And as you say, it leaves your options...

Re: Has anyone completed a PhD before applying for the DClin

Yeh I would never do a PhD solely as a way of getting onto the DClinPsy. I am expecting a good first class degree this summer so it wouldn't be to prove myself academically, it is because I have a love of research and would rather devote myself to that than go between support worker type roles witho...

Re: Is a MSc worth it !?

Thanks for your opinion, I am inclined to agree. I think I might apply anyway (deadline for scholarship is May 1st which I would need if I did do it) and have it as a back up plan if I literally can't find any relevant work. I've been in a nice bubble of uni for 4 years - it's all quite overwhelming...

Is a MSc worth it !?

Hello! I am graduating this year, on track for a first. I originally just planned to apply for AP / support worker type roles, but after reading a lot of forums and speaking to other students, am actually considering a MSc (foundations to Clinical Psychology). I would rather do a masters than end up...
