Re: is privilege a given?

what a lovely answer - thank you Just thought it would be a bit odd to be talking about enjoying my little garden in my house, that we live in relative peace etc. I won't be scared to answer truthfully but as you say, the experience of using services (I have had both, being under the care of a menta...

is privilege a given?

Just curious, may not attract much traffic but curious on anyone's thoughts I have just completed my high intensity training, and someone on my course, has applied and had an interview this year. I am similarly thinking of applying next year. We are both mid 30's and have worked in other professions...

Re: Calling people "non-qualified(s)"

I'm just completing the pg dip children's IAPT qualification whereas I am known as trainee. The only time I have been referred to as non qualified is working as a HCA, by nurses, and yes it is a nasty term. So that is why I won't be doing that in a hurry (also no need as there are band 5/6 IAPT post...

Re: CWP - any previous trainees?

I'm on the course now. I applied with 2 years camhs experience but most have less. Most don't have direct experience. I was supposed to go on enhanced evidence based practice for existing staff and am finding th e course a bit slow to get going. For someone without much direct experience it's a grea...

Re: Pwp extra funding possibilities?

Ask! I worked as a camhs school trainer, 2 years, band 5 and managed to get mid point band 4. I'm a youth worker and want to use this to start applying for camhs tier 2 posts. Be aware though the training starts off REALLY basic and the initial section on assessment can be like pulling teeth, partic...

Re: dual registered psychologists

I have to say I am one of the few (reading that paper) who would love to be an 0-25 psychologist. I can't think of anything that would suit me better. I really did consider educational psychology but that would mean closing out the nhs, do clinical and it closes the local authority door. It is somet...

seeking individual therapy

......a question really, just that. Has anyone here sought out individual therapy whilst working as a qualified practitioner/psychologist or similar. If yes, what was the impact of this on you, your practice? And what made you seek to initiate this process in the first place? I work in camhs as a ca...
