Re: Paperwork for starting in 2020

UEA sent out a conditional contract last week, along with instructions for employment checks. You'll probably receive something very soon from your course too!

Re: IAPT References for the DClinPsy

I think that not being able to have a more individualised reference could be a problem for the dclin because the application also involves providing a clinical reference (current supervisor preferred) who can comment on various skills that are relevant for the trainee CP position. I have heard of pe...

Re: Self-help for anxiety / excessive checking

I'm not sure if I can post a link here, but you could also try the CCI workbooks, which are free CBT self help booklets broken down into modules. There's not a specific one for checking/intrusive thoughts but there's some on distress tolerance and worry that could be relevant. Hope you find what yo...

Break Free from OCD: Overcoming Obsessive Compulsive Disorder with CBT by Fiona Challacombe, Dr Victoria Bream Oldfield and Professor Paul Salkovskis could be a useful book.
Thank you, I'll look into it.

Self-help for anxiety / excessive checking

Hello everyone, I was wondering if you know of any self-help materials or techniques that I could use to help me manage my anxiety better. This is something that has been a problem for me on and off for many years, it mainly manifests as the need to check that I did things right, I suppose it fits a...

Re: Do I need to do a masters?

Perhaps you could initially consider some of the clinical courses that place less emphasis on research at the application stage? Alternatively you could also look for research assistant-type posts, having one of these might be enough to evidence your academic skills, especially since you already had...

Re: 2020 - Transitioning to the doctorate in Sept

I have mixed feelings about it too, but the positive ones outweigh the negative ones so far. It will involve a lot of changes, I will move away from my partner and I think this will be one of the more difficult parts of it, because we've lived together for a few years now. However I'm really looking...

Re: Video Interviews

For those who have completed their video interviews, regardless of outcomes and have interviewed previously - how different are they to the usual interview process. Are you finding that questions are very different to what might usually be expected of the interviews? Please note, I am not asking fo...

Re: Coronavirus

Do you think this situation will impact on the DClinPsy intake this year? I am not sure how their funding works and whether it can be taken away in situations like these.
