Re: Locum CP Work and Bank CP Work

Thanks, Miriam. I had a chance to learn about the conditions for being employed through an agency and being bank staff. It apparently can change context to context but in this case locum work was indeed came with considerably higher pay. Fortunately, the NHS trust just gets the referral from the age...

Re: Qualified in psychology abroad and want to work in the UK?

Hi agill, As a person who walked the same steps, I must say that unfortunately, it would be nearly impossible for you to be employed if your employer needs to obtain a visa for you. This is because of current immigration rules. The only way to employ a non-UK/EU person is to prove that this post was...

Locum CP Work and Bank CP Work

Hi everyone, Is there any difference between locum CP and bank CP roles? I was offered a job as locum but when talking about the details it came up that going to bank route might help starting faster. However, I am not sure whether there is any difference between both (in terms of salary, expense cl...

Re: Social justice and psychotherapy

I think there’s a single tangible reality out there, which can be empirically verified, and that it is incumbent on us to remain as aligned with this reality as possible.
I just have one question: who gets to decide which of the multiple versions of a reality is the real reality?

Re: How did people pay rent and support themselves doing a counselling psychology doctorate ?

People I know are doing it part-time and in the past it was possible to take the independent route (without enrolling at a university), and you wouldn't receive the title "dr" but still become a "counselling psychologist". I don't know whether it is still possible to do that.

Re: Major amendments on research thesis

I think late graduation due to major corrections is quite high, too. I am now doing my final placement in a Trust employing trainees from a variety of courses for their specialist placements. We have a dedicated trainee space and naturally we talk to each other in the office. We share how things are...

Re: Stuck with doctorate course choices!? RHUL/IoPPN/Herts/Essex

Advice on courses' orientations: If you're more CBT oriented, you might consider choosing RHUL and IOPPN If you're more social constructivism oriented, consider choosing Essex. I don't have information on Herts course. However, consider your application and previous academic ahchievements while choo...

Re: Opinion on thieves and other low-grade crime committers

I use the same approach I use for racists (especially working class disadvantaged people). The way they behave might be understandable, but that doesn't excuse their actions as other people come into harm's way because of it.

Re: Help me pick a doctorate course

I would say Essex. I would say its ethos is similar to Salomons and uel. First-year CBT and psychodynamic teaching (at Tavi). Second-year systemic teaching and a little bit CBT and psychoanalytic (very little). Placement wise, it can be varied though. My first placement was purely CBT, but in my sec...

Re: When do I need the necessary experience by?

Really sorry if this has been asked before, but I wasn't able to find an answer myself. I've just obtained a research assistant position within the NHS working with individuals with depression.

Re: Visa related issue

that means I will not be able to do the course for another 3 years when I eventually get indefinite leave to remain. I don't understand this. Surely the day it becomes indefinite leave to remain you are eligible for the course? I think OP means "until" instead of "when". For the original question, ...
