Re: Personal info

I work mostly in forensic settings and I think even in these settings a blanket rule is not neccesary. Within therapy I explore why they want to know sometimes, but when I'm just wandering out and about I think a lot of the time people are just bored and interested. I know people are risky in forens...

Re: Gifts for supervisors

I always get them a plant to go in their office. Not too personal, but a nice gesture - or at least that's my thinking!

Re: WAIS-IV discrepancies?

For WAIS 3 it was +/- 24 pts wasnt it? I had a similar issue recently as it is certainly not as clear in the WAIS 4 handbook. Can't remember what I found in the end.

Re: Systemic thinking course

I would say your attendance on the course would not enhance your application that much on paper in terms of lists of clinical experience. However, going on it could really help you to think about another way to reflect on your experiences. Systemic work is highly reflective in nature and this could ...

Re: change from fornesic to clinical

Hi, I have been through a similar journey to you and I think it is becoming increasingly common, as there becomes a bottleneck of people with Forensic Psych masters but not the availability of posts to do stage 2. I always wanted to do forensic psych. I never got round to doing my masters, but I kne...

Re: Why is the average age 28?

But you did also say you can't possibly experience every problem that everyone you would come into contact as a CP whether that be their current issues e.g. panic attacks, hearing voices, or past traumas, e.g. sexual abuse, loss of a loved one, societal oppression. To think that you can develop empa...

Re: Why is the average age 28?

As a relatively young trainee (I graduate this yr @ 26) I do, in part, see your point. I have had several clients who have been unsure when they first met me due to my age. However, when I have met with them and we have got to know each other they have all seemed to be ok with it. I know this becaus...

Re: Pay banding/increments - transfer from uni to NHS?

I had a friend move from HMPS to NHS on band 4, and got paid right at the top of the Band 4 in line with her pay from HMPS - so it can be done if the jobs are seen as using the same skills.

Keeping session on track article

Hello all,

I was wondering if any kind person had access to this article :D

Antaki, C, and Jahoda, A. (2010) Psychotherapists' practices in keeping a session "on-track" in the face of clients' "off-track" talk. Communication and Medicine, 7, 11-21

Thanks!!
