Hi there, I am going to be delivering some training to our new cohort of SW students, and one of the topics they have identified they would like to know more about is cognitive assessments. I have previously delivered some training with a colleague, and we included a demonstration of some (fake!) WA...

Re: Cringeworthy things you said in an interview

In my most recent interview, I had a written task to complete before the face-face part, and I was tight on time and felt a bit flustered when I got in to see the panel. When they asked me the first question, I replied "Oh wow, it's just like being on blind date!" before wishing the ground would swa...

Re: Struggling with Professional Development

Hi Cogan91, (I did write a much more detailed reply, which my laptp then ate....!!!) If you want to gain/improve your skills I was thinking about whether you could explore some of the broader skills which CPs employ, rather than just thinking about the therapeutic aspects? One of the great things ab...

Re: Looking for a Master

Hi Dimitris! Congratulations on finishing your bachelor degree! I think it would be useful to know what your long-term career plans are so that people can answer your post! It's easier to suggest particular courses if we know what you ultimately hope to achieve. Why do you want to do a masters cours...

WAIS prorating?

I realise the short answer to my question is to go and read the manual, but I won't have access for a few days... So, a client gained a raw score of 0 on symbol search - I didn't substitute a subtest as I didn't realise at the time. Is it possible to prorate by just using scores from the other 9 sub...
