Re: Application form question: Other information about yourself eg activities/interests apart from psychology.)

Hahaha Psyfer, Dungeons and Dragons would definitely get a +5 in my books :lol: I can't speak to what reviewers are looking for, but when I applied I talked about my love for travel and drama, so just focusing on my hobbies I guess. I didn't really overthink it, because as you say, I felt like they ...

Re: Dissemination question

Hi Natalie, I did something similar for my dissemination section when I applied. I had been given the workshop/presentation general content but it was up to me to tailor and deliver, and I ended up adapting parts quite a bit to make it more engaging and suit my audience. I feel like this is reasonab...

Re: Research & DClinPsy

Hahahaaa the UGH is so real, but honestly I think you would be in good company when it comes to having other people on training who aren't wild about the research component. Anyway, having done an MSc I promise you will have a better grasp of research/stats than what I did when I started training - ...

Re: Experience section of application

Hey - yeah when I applied I just put the name of the organisation that I worked for :), and yes I interpreted the area of employment area the same as you and this all seemed to be fine!

It's so easy to get stressed out with the small details, I feel ya!!! Hope that helped xx

Re: Research & DClinPsy

Hi Luna, I have had a similar experience to you and absolutely feel the UGH when it comes to stats. I'm on training at the moment and have found the research/stats modules to be really comprehensive - they go through things in quite some detail, to the point where I now feel like I actually understa...

Re: Training during COVID

Hello, I wasn't sure where else to put this really. I,like many others on this site, will be starting training this Autumn. Again, like many, my course will be delivered in a blended way, with only key clinical skills workshops being delivered in person. Whilst I've been used to working from home o...

Re: Where in the world can a UK ClinPsych work?

I can understand that sense of loyalty and debt, but in reality, sometimes people qualify and can't find jobs in their area. I was unemployed for a few months after training and unable to relocate and I know of others who had it worse. why should we feel obligated to stay in the NHS if the NHS has ...

Re: Access to a car?

Hi all! This is my first post and I hope it's okay to ask a question relevant to this thread. I have been thinking about applying for the DClinPsy in the next few years, but reading this thread has made me concerned. If the ability to drive is a pre-requisite for most courses that would be a huge s...

Re: Should I apply??

Hey - re your trip, that would almost certainly be a problem I'm afraid. Most courses begin around late September with an intensive teaching block which would comprise of core learning which you would need to carry forward for your first placement and beyond. Think you would put yourself under a lo...

Re: Jordan Peterson - why do practitioners not like him?

I don’t think however (and here I am in agreement with Miriam) that getting into an ideological debate is the way forward. There was a recent paper (I think by Reicher et al but I would need to check) on extremism which clearly showed that challenging people with extreme views on the basis of ideol...

Re: Jordan Peterson - why do practitioners not like him?

I sometimes get asked in court, when talking about parents who have harmed their children, why I haven't mentioned the times that were fun or the elements in the contact session that were positive. I say that those are lovely to see, but even if a person is a great parent 95% of the time it doesn't...

Re: Jordan Peterson - why do practitioners not like him?

Correct me if I've misunderstood you buenosaires, but I wonder if what you're saying is that you disagree with JP's content, but you think it is important to understand how he has got such a following (I.e. the process)? If this is the case, then would that change miriam's analogy to whether or not...
