Re: Psyhotherapist working as expert witness??

Thank you for your reply Miriam you raise some important issues. Having a suitably qualified and experienced supervisor is a must and I’m definitely planning to access some specific training to prepare for the court environment (I’ve heard Bond Solon is good one). I don’t believe I’m ready for it at...

Psyhotherapist working as expert witness??

Hi! I was just wondering does anyone know if an experienced psychotherapist would be qualified to work as an expert witness? I've been working with trauma survivors for a number of years now as a psychotherapist (using trauma focused CBT and EMDR) and recently started to explore this role as a poten...

Re: Research involvement as a PWP?

Hi, It's not the norm for PWPs to work in research projects but some trusts encourage you if you accept a post as a PWP. In my experience it's usually a good thing to be involved as the research brings it's own funding. I've worked as a PWP 2-3 years ago for an NHS trust and has done some exciting w...

Re: Article in Telegraph on PWP led group CBT for anxiety

I'm pretty sure the "smart, young looking" practitioner would love to spend an hour talking to her patients one to one while explaining CBT techniques and learning her name. I think it's the service commissioners who should be blamed for her not knowing her patient's name and looking too often at th...

If anyone working in a similar environment has info about the relevant (hot) issues or specific skills these services might look for in an AP please share it! Any...

My experience is, that its better to address each and every point in the persons spec. If u clearly demonstrate that u meet all the essential/desirable criteria I think shortlisters are willing to forgive you for a long form(mine is 1400-1800 words depending on the requirements). I got a few intervi...

I can only agree with Dragonfly and Matt, response times can be really different. I applied for an NHS AP post few months ago and waited 7 weeks for the message inviting me for the interview, in an other similar case it took them "only" 4 weeks to respond. It’s usually more than 3 weeks in my experi...

Hi Arabesques, I thought you are at the UK doing your RA post. Anyway if you are committed I would seriously consider moving to the UK. It is clear that you are quite close to be successful. Just getting an interview shows that you have a lot of experience/qualifications what course selectors value ...

Hi Victoria I hope it's not too late for my post. Just one piece of advice, try to think about actual examples to demonstrate your relevant knowledge/ experience (for example how u used supervision in a difficult case and how it helped you to understand it...). I have been to a few IAPT interviews a...

Hi Arabesques Have u considered voluntary work? I'm probably not the most experienced person to give u advice but selectors might value a bit of practical experience in the NHS better, than textbook knowledge. Usually you don't have to commit yourself for more than a half day or day a week and can s...
