Re: Postgrad degree- Research

Thanks

Re: CAMHS Interview

Read up on the NHS 10 year plan as there's a section on child mental health. Think about a difficult situation you've worked with - there'll be lots of risk in a CAMHS Crisis team so they're likely to ask you about how you've managed a risky situation. Also think about your own resilience and what ...

I’ve literally been up every few hours through the night checking my emails. Waiting on a response from Glasgow and Edinburgh and to be truthful it’s making me sick

Re: Psychological therapy in primary care OR

[quote="BlueCat"]Hey Sam What bit of this are you after advice with? I guess there's lots of "received wisdom" sayings that could apply here: Hello Blue Cat and thank you for your response. As you mentioned I didn't specify any advice I was after. TBH I just wanted advice on my general situation. I ...

I haven't posted in a while, and have mainly just come to check in on how people are getting on from a distance every once in a while... but felt compelled to respond. Maybe it's because I'm still not quite finished with training, but I really felt for you with the responses that you got to this fr...

Re: 'considered for interview shortlisting 2018'

I wasn't going to say anything but I agree with the above poster about mavens comments. I think its a little too late to be cautioned about 'vesting too much in the process' as getting onto the DClinPsy is pretty much what I think of all day every day.

Re: 'considered for interview shortlisting 2018'

Congrats Sam. Maven, I cant help but feel you're trying to suck the excitement/curiosity/joy out of an applicant's experience. They acknowledge themselves they might not get any further, I don't find your attempt at managing expectations helpful or appropriate. Thank you! I agree with you comment c...
