Re: Doldrums...ideas?

Hmm that's frustrating, particularly as you're already registered. I do know that some companies do telephone assessments for legal cases, screening for mental health conditions for insurance companies, but I'm not sure how long it would take to get set up doing that. There's also court work, capaci...

Re: Opinions on using notes in an interview

Sounds positive and it was very good of the interviewer to give such detailed feedback. Good luck for the next one!

Re: Post training holiday

After watching Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, I'd quite like to go to a Greek Island and just do nothing apart from sleep and eat, and sing ABBA songs.

Re: Opinions on using notes in an interview

Lingua has worded what I would have said better than I ever could. I have predominantly worked in inpatient services, and often other members of the MDT will ask an Assistant Psychologist for their opinion on what a service user might need, or why they might be doing x, y and z. I wouldn't expect th...

Re: What is the view on the Clinical Associate Psychology Masters?

Interesting thread. Does anyone know what happened to the cohort of Associate Psychologists trained in England when New Ways of Working came out? I assume that there were issues when we then became regulated by the HCPC because Associate Psychologist is not a recognised title.

Re: Opinions on using notes in an interview

I think it would depend for me. If this had been requested as a reaonable adjustment, I wouldn't have an issue. However, I think in an interview I'd be assessing more than just someone's ability to research something then read it back off a piece of paper. I'd like to think I was employing someone w...

What I say: please email me if you have any questions or you'd like to discuss further.

What I mean: don't. I've said it all there. Leave me alone.

Re: EMDR

Thanks hs577. In the case I'm thinking of, the client will give me a sentence between sets that follows on in a chronological way. So for example after one set it might be "I saw the car driving towards me" and the next one is "it crashed into me" (not real examples). It just struck me as unusual th...

Oh Lingua, I hope she's ok. Must've been a real shock. I'm glad your dad is able to find some humour in it though!

Re: Need help gathering dissertation material.

Hi I'm not sure there's an easy and ethical way to get this information. The only possible thing I could think of is if there are any documentaries on people who have been a victim of a miscarriage of justice. There are a fair few high profile cases, but whether or not there'd be footage of their Po...

EMDR

Hi,

For those trained in EMDR - have you experienced clients recalling an incident in a very clear consecutive order during phase 3? As in, the way that they would recall it if they were just been asked to retell it without bilateral stimulation?

Thanks

Re: Application “honesty”

I agree with Geishawife here. I can see that this is definitely something that would be frustrating, but agree that there's probably little you can practically do. If someone has a form that doesn't reflect what they really know, this will undoubtedly trip them up at interview and they will hopefull...
