Re: Social Workers therapeutic role

Indeed it was not. Perhaps I have missed the point and made an incorrect assumption that the original poster was attempting to spark debate on the appropriateness of social workers taking a therapeutic role, hence my reply. My position with regard to this was that I see no reason why people from oth...

Re: Social Workers therapeutic role

Given that Clinical Psychology cannot claim ownership nor exclusivity of the vast majority of therapies, this doesn't seem unreasonable to me. I believe that some therapies, Solution Focussed Therapy for example, was developed by Social Workers as well, so they as a professional group may validly cl...

Re: Mileage Tax Relief - Temporary Workplace Relief for Trai

Very helpful! Does anyone know how this might work for public transport within London. For example... if you live in 'Zone 3' and are studying 20 miles away at UCL ('Zone 1') but your placement is 10 miles away in 'Zone 6'. Are you able to claim tax relief on the additional cost of traveling to plac...

Re: University of East London online test

Maybe this is the Critical Thinking test? Or a nice piece of research testing our problem solving skills and mental resilience measured by time taken to contact UEL by manipulating applicants anxiety levels by delaying sending the tests. Maybe theres a control group who have already received the tes...

Re: Paid AP work for BPS: Six months 1 day per week

Hi Miriam,

my apologies. I had seen this advertised elsewhere at a much lower rate for a longer period of time. It looks as though the originally advertised details have been ammended so your right :D

Re: Paid AP work for BPS: Six months 1 day per week

Is it not somewhat questionable, and perhaps even hypocritical, for the BPS to advertise such short term, low paid, minimal hours work to psychology graduates in the context of attempting to increase the accessibility and diversity of clinical psychology?

Re: Assaulted by Service User

Sorry to hear that! Doesn't sound like a nice experience at all and must put you in a very difficult position! Sadly it seems all too common that things like this get swept under the carpet and normalised in support work. It might be worth looking at the charities guidelines around reporting inciden...

Re: Is ADHD over diagnosed?

A contentious issue for sure. I quite like Christopher Gillberg’s model of neurodisability. He argues that we shouldn’t be trying to separate out different neurodevelopmental disabilities but instead see them as part of one large and diverse group. ADHD (and most other neurodevelopmental disabilitie...

Re: Teeside announce internship route to their DClin trainin

Much more eloquently put than me.... Thanks :) This forum is an invaluable source of information on the many routes to training in clinical psychology. However it should not be the only source of in-depth information as it currently is. Something surely must come from a more official channel (e.g. B...

Re: Teeside announce internship route to their DClin trainin

Surely all this shows us is the lack of any form of effective leadership or national strategy on clinical training. The lack of transparency in application and selection processes, the vast differences between what course centres are looking for, the vast differences between what individual course s...

Re: People asking for support/advice outside of work

Completely empathise with everything already said! One of the most challenging aspects for me is that I also occasionally work part time as a barman in a pub where all the locals know that I work in psychology. Part and parcel of being a barman is lending a sympathetic ear to everyones problems and ...

Re: School/Nursey based observations

Everythings already been said... but i'd also say that it's not always wrong to have some direct contact/communication with the child your observing or other children in the class. Not only can it can give you a very good extra angle to observe from (i.e. as a participant observer) but also that its...

Re: Reference advice

Sorry to hear that! I've always wondered what the validity of the academic reference is. Surely most peoples academic referee is their university tutor who, in reality. had very little contact with them and can't really add anything meaningful to the application. Particuarly an issue for people who ...
