Re: Cognitive Analytic Therapy & young people

I thought I had seen something about this on Twitter recently but I just did a search and cannot find what I was looking for. I did find this post which may point you in the right direction: @CatalyseC John Mulhall Reformulation article describes necessary flexibility in use of CAT in 6 session clos...

Re: Interview reserve lists - how much do they move?

I was 4th on the reserve list for Herts last year and it didn't move at all - but apparently the year before it moved 11 places. So hard to predict, so I would err on the side of caution if you can. That said, I think we all deserve a holiday! Good luck :D This is interesting because I was second o...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2015

No email yet for me for Cov - but I didn't get one last year - just a letter (which was a no). Can't help but think they email successful applicants and the rest are letters - based on last year! Last year I received a letter inviting me to interview, but I seem to recall the unsuccessful applicant...

Re: Is a support worker job a MUST?

Hello! The short answer to your question is that a support worker job is NOT a must, and neither is an AP job. I wonder what you consider a support worker role to be, as they are very varied. This topic came up in this thread , where you can see that they are quite varied, can be in a hospital setti...

Re: 2 years post qualified?

This is still the latest information on the IAPT website: http://www.iapt.nhs.uk/silo/files/iaptb ... -final.pdf

They call it a recommendation rather than a requirement though, so maybe that's how your other ex-colleague's new service got around it?

Re: The speakmans

It seems like JamesFManc is still doing a good job of being provocative and getting a reaction from people ("clin psychologists never really help people they just manage a person's decline" and "I just want the title of doctor" for example). One could even say the comments are a bit troll like, but ...

Re: Are PWP roles competitive?

I echo what nomnom said. Once you're a qualified PWP it should be very easy to get a job anywhere in the country as there is a high attrition rate of PWPs and an increased demand for them. I would also suggest trying to find a funded option first if you can. I wonder how the self-funded course works...

Re: Low Intensity University Course

Hi Psychsocialworker, Congrats on getting the post! When I got my post the training came included and I did not have to find my own course. However, as long as your course is accredited I assume they all follow a similar structure as they should all be working towards the same national curriculum. Y...

Re: Coventry & Warwick 2014

Hi all, I noticed in the Sheffield group that they've set up a facebook group so they can get to know each other a bit before September, thought it was a nice idea. Anyone interested if I set one up? Hope you're all enjoying the sun! 8) Sounds good to me! It might be worth making it a private group...
