Re: Reporting concerns

Who funds the service? Are they commissioned by (for example) a local council who may be interested in their actions?

There's a tagline for your next book Spatch - "The Banksy of the Psychology World."

5) Lease car. The impulsive child in me wants to order it NOW, the responsible adult knows it's a better idea to wait until the end of the summer when my terrible old car's MOT expires and I've gone up a payband. Delayed gratification is not my forte.
Order the car!

Re: Make it interesting...

Thank you Lingua, I think that's the way to go. I probably need to include some data, but the more I can weave in the voice of the service user, the better. Maybe I'll do a one page summary of the data rather than a laborious Powerpoint.

Make it interesting...

I have some information to present in about a month to a senior person in a different profession. It's an update of a new service, probably with some data and a discussion of the external evaluation. The advice to me from the senior person was to "make it interesting!" Please could people share expe...

Re: AP, but with no intention of qualifying?

Would that not be off putting to potential employers though? Unless it's a service where psych is really not valued, I'd have thought lots of expertise etc at AP level is off put by the fact they don't actually want to develop further/qualify... never been in the position to choose but would part o...

Re: Difficult relationships in a small world

I’ve met a fair few people who aren’t my favourites over the years. I can give you the fake psychologist answe about reflecting on what the issues were, trying to have empathy for them and rising above it. But really, if I see them I am fake nice because although I am petty and hold grudges, I enjoy...

Re: Do you introduce yourself as a Dr?

I think I did when I was newly qualified and super excited to have my title. Now I tend not to, to the point where in my last job, service users were surprised that I was a doctor when they found out. Obviously I took that to mean I look incredibly young, rather than them thinking I’m not clever eno...
