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...

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

Sorry I have to say that I find this kind of commentary really quite unhelpful. I don't know how you intend on engaging people with differing opinions when you boil down their stance to being demonstrative of a lack of "knowledge and critical thinking". Elevating yourself above others is surely a q...

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

Really thoughtful post Miranda. For me, taking the time to really listen to his rationale (and RESISTING the temptation to immediately get offended) has been a useful exercise. I realised that I didn't actually have much of a rebuttle for - or even really considered - many of his points (i.e. the d...

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

It takes knowledge and critical thinking to see the problems in Peterson's rhetoric, and this thread proves that even people with an interest in psychology often lack that. Sorry I have to say that I find this kind of commentary really quite unhelpful. I don't know how you intend on engaging people...

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

Hi there, I find the talks by Jordan Peterson quite useful. Whilst I absolutely don't agree with everything the man says, I think I have really benefited as a clinician listening to what he has to say as well as in myself as a person. Patients I have worked with in IAPT have also reported back to m...

Re: 2019 Doctorate Application Progress thread

I'm also struggling with choices right now. I have an offer from UEA and an upcoming interview at Southampton. Southampton is near my partner, but UEA is right by my parents and would allow me to live at home and save for a mortgage. I also got a really great vibe from UEA. If funding gets cut (whi...

Re: Reserve List Interview thread

Hi everyone -

In case it is of interest to anyone on the forum, I have decided to withdraw from Cov and Warwick so an interview slot should be coming available for the 5th :) Good luck!!
