Re: Lezak - 5th edition (worth it?)

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll see if I come across a copy at work and have a look. I like the sound of accessible stuff on neuroimaging.

Thanks again

Lezak - 5th edition (worth it?)

I already have a copy of the 4th edition but am considering selling it and getting the 5th. Anyone whose seen both able to offer any advice on whether its worth it. I work in neuropsych and am hoping to do a bit of CPD (i.e. reading said Lezak) to develop my knowledge. Is the new one worth it in ter...

Neuropsych assessment in adult mental health

This feels like a really obvious question but one I want to ask anyway. In adult mental health settings (CMHTs, inpatient, EIP - anything really) what kinds of reasons are people referred for neuropsych assessment? I imagine some are 'diagnostic' (Asperger's, ADHD) and others are more general (ascer...

Palliative care

Hey there,

Does anyone have any advice, particularly good books, tips to self-care etc for working with clients who are dying, but in a non palliative care setting.

Thanks

RAVLT norms

Hey there,

Any chances anyone has handy access to normative data for the RAVLT? For a 47-year-old. Wanting to finish a report but manual etc has been 'borrowed'. Would be so helpful if you do so I can pm a couple of raw scores to you.

Thanks
:)

Re: 2012 application form

Good luck everyone applying this year. A really cheesy suggestion but one that worked for me. When I first applied to get on training I decided I needed something to distract myself - so decided to set myself a completely unrelated goal so whatever the outcome of the application process was I had so...

Re: Eligibility for Interview Panels

I agree with your Trust policy too. I had a band 7 interview with an Assistant Psychologist on the panel and found it hugely off-putting. Became very distracted by whether she was thinking "how on earth did you get on training, let alone finish it?!". :lol: No idea why she'd be anymore likely to thi...

Re: Dissertation block

It sounds like a really interesting idea. The first thing I would be thinking about is what kind of study it will be possible to do as an undergrad. Specifically I'm thinking about acess to forensic populations from which to draw your sample. I'm not sure from your post if this is what you're hoping...

Re: Wanting to help people - cliché?

I 'admitted' in my DClinPsych interview that I wanted to help people and got offered a place. I did back it up with quite a bit of reflecting though - where my desire to help people might have come from (if I'm focusing on other people's problems its quite distracting from my own :oops: ), how being...

Re: Is IAPT failing people with medical problems?

Re: Is IAPT failing people with medical problems?

Thanks for all the replies - its really interesting to hear people's views and that link was really useful (thanks KitKat). It does seem like historically (and currently) these areas seem to have been neglected by both primary and secondary services. Stories such as eastofnorth's seem really common....

Re: honourary AP tips

Hey, Congrats on getting such a useful post. I did a placement in a community brain injury service and I found the experience really interesting. I found Psychotherapy after Brain Injury by P.

I agree - I did the Introduction to CBT series at the OCTC years back and found them brilliant. :)
