IFL Science Asserts Anxiety is Genetically Inherited

http://www.iflscience.com/brain/anxiety ... ent-child/

:?

Does this kind of thing bother anyone else?

What do you think when you see something like this on a widely-read social media page?

Does it feel different to reading something like this in a newspaper article?

Re: Alzheimer's/ MCI and the ADAS-Cog

Hi, Sorry, I'm only a trainee and I'm only on placement with OA, but I've just done a heap of cog/dementia testing/assessment revision in the past few weeks, and I don't think it is. Although having said that I think it's important to acknowledge that what's available and what's good/appropriate for...

Re: Maths/Stats test

I think I've done the one you're talking about a couple of times before. It wouldn't be fair for me to disclose the content, but I found brushing up on the parts of maths/stats that I felt less confident in made the whole thing less scary. With these things I always find that building it up in your ...

Re: An open letter to the rejectees of 2014

Cheers Spatch. As someone who has 9 years clinical experience I really appreciate the letter. I graduated in 2008 and chose A-level Psychology at the age of 15 because I wanted to pursue a career as a Clinical Psychologist. I am now 27. I have always sought posts that fit in with my home life and s...

Re: Psychology

If psychology is your interest, do that! Decisions about doing things like a masters are still a long way away. You never know what might happen, and not everybody does one anyway. There are no right or wrong answers though, that's what's so hard about these decisions! When we've made them though, w...

Re: D.Clin - does it matter where you do it?

I suppose the only real difference that I can think of is if one course can offer a specialist placement in an area/ with an approach you already know that you really want to work in, but another can't. Having said that, you might start and change your mind completely on what's the "thing"...

Re: Qualified CBT therapist - will I have problems applying?

Hi, I'm sorry - I'm not an IAPTy person, but there are a few with this experience in my cohort (1st year), and my course isn't a particularly CBT-heavy one, it's quite an eclectic one. I think the idea of someone saying the you won't get on because the course will assume that you've already got bad ...

Re: Should I apply? Mental health care home manager

If you mean, based on the information you've given, does it sound like you might have enough experience to go on if you're a good fit in all kinds of other ways that nobody on here can see (which seems to be to be what you're asking) - then yes! go for it!

Re: People asking for support/advice outside of work

I find this such an interesting topic. It seems people have some varied experiences of what it's like to be seen in their personal lives as a part of mental health services that have let people down, or as someone who might be able to help, signpost, resolve, validate, etc, because of being a psycho...

Re: Diploma in Counselling useful or not?

Are you particularly interested in the psychotherapeutic approach?

I think it kind of depends on the course as to how highly that would be regarded. It sounds like some excellent experience to get to me!

If you feel excited and fascinated by it, maybe it will be worth it anyway?

Re: Accepting a job that you don't want?

I think you should look after yourself and accept it, and yes, if it's NHS it will probably take rather longer than two weeks for the paperwork to be processed anyway. Good luck, I hope you get what you want! :)

Re: Help me choose my 4th course centre choice

If you like an eclectic and open-minded approach, i can't really speak for other courses, but I find Liverpool to be very much like that. A lot of people seem to choose it for that reason. It might be worth having a look?
