Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2015

I can't quite believe this: Bath --> Bath!! Manchester UCL Holloway I've withdrawn from my interview at Holloway, so that should be moving up a place on reserves! I quite wanted to go to the interview, but I couldn't take that opportunity from someone else so good luck for whoever gets that spot :D

Re: Miliband pledge to end long-term unpaid internships

I have mixed feelings about this. I was an honorary assistant psychologist for three months, which eventually led to some bank work, and I believe was instrumental in getting me a paid AP position at interview in another trust. I think this is the way in clinical psychology sometimes - it is so comp...

Re: Difference between Theory, Model and Therapy

I know this has been discussed a lot on the forum, but I'm getting myself in a tizz about this so I just wanted to check my thinking is correct. Initially, I thought I had it: Theory: set of ideas and assumptions supported by evidence and that we believe to be accurate e.g. Attachment theory, Learni...

Re: Reflection on clinical work

I use a reflection journal, and I find it really helpful as my style of learning is very visual! I don't have a particular format though - some days I write as if it is a diary entry, sometimes in bullet points, sometimes I use mind maps, whatever I feel on the day. I think the most important thing ...

Re: Interview prep with few therapeutic cases

Thank you so much! I was so caught up on therapy that I forgot about all the other areas which are linked it.

I'm still feeling like an imposter, pretty sure I'm going to get a phone call any day now telling me there was an admin error and maybe it's best if I don't turn up haha :P

Interview prep with few therapeutic cases

Hi all, I've been trying to do some interview prep and have been using all of the incredibly helpful advice on here, however one thing is really concerning me. Most of my experience is based on neuropsychological assessment with a couple of rehabilitation exercises - I have absolutely no experience ...

Controlling interview nerves

Hi all, I've just recently had a couple of job interviews and have a couple of doctorate interviews coming up and I'm noticing a trend in my performance - I panic when people ask me questions and blurt out everything I can think of in that 5 seconds in a completely unstructured way, whilst leaving o...

Re: NHS reforms and the implications for clinical psychologi

Hi guys! Really interesting post with lots of insightful opinions. I was wondering, now a couple of years down the line, how people have experienced the reforms? I know from my limited AP experience, that the increased competition appears to have inspired "business focus" on occasion (perhaps to the...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1) I really want to buy that car
2) But the insurance is so much higher, and I really cant justify spending the money right now
3) But I'm 24 now, surely I can treat myself to a car which is younger than my sister
4) I'm doing it, I'm buying the car
5) Oh god, why did I buy the car?

Re: How do undergrads get relevant experience?

Definitely agree with all of the above. Just to add, I don't think it is always necessary to start getting experience as an undergraduate. Although it is great to get started early, you only have a limited time to work on your degree and make it the best you can whilst you have plenty of time to gai...

Re: Knew you wanted to be a CP from a young age? How?

Firstly, I am not a qualified CP... just a hopeful for now... but I am one of those people who has always known this is what I've wanted to do, and I've been struggling with this question for a while now! All I know is I first saw a "So you want to be a Clinical Psychologist?" leaflet at the age of ...
