Re: Outcome Measures

What is it that you think the measures aren't picking up? Is it more diagnosis specific, or related to functioning / quality of life / experience of the service?

Like most services, we're pretty restricted to using free measures, so RCADS, CRIES-8, SDQ (this is a child service).

Re: Working with clients who embellish

Thanks both. He embellishes with parents as well and I can understand why - there are sibling issues and he has had a period living in care before being returned home recently. There's also a strong peer influence. I've said to him that our work needs to focus a little more on feelings than behaviou...

Working with clients who embellish

Just typing up some session notes and it's pretty clear that the person I'm working with has reported some things that aren't true, and I could easily verify. He's 17, difficult background including trauma and adoption. I'm curious really on whether or not people challenge these types of lies in the...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. The small business grant we applied for at the end of last year has passed through due diligence and been approved. It couldn't be more timely, as we are suddenly seeing how much we need to do to be ready to scale up as the demand for our products and services increases. Their match funding will...

4. I am looking at EMDR training - any insight from others who have done this training?
I've recently completed Part 3 of my EMDR training - it's pretty intense training but I am using the approach in my daily work.

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 s...

Re: Online therapy or remote psychology jobs

Remember that clinical psychology isn't just about therapy as well, so if you only want to do therapy, then the breadth of clincial psychology training probably isn't relevant either.
