Re: Doldrums...ideas?

Re: Any interest in an applications webinar?

Sounds like there is a consensus for topic, and most people can attend next Sunday evening. So unless things change in the next couple of days, I'll run with that as the topic and time. I wonder if it would work to send out a PM an hour or so before the session to let people start thinking about the...

Re: TCD round one assessment

Asking for (or providing) inside information about interviews or selection tasks is against our rules. We are very clear that we will never allow this forum to act in a way that undermines fair selection processes. Courses provide the same information to all applicants, and if they wanted you to hav...

Re: Any interest in an applications webinar?

I don't really have any knowledge about the tests to impart, as I've never taken one or been involved with setting one up or evaluating the results. However, if members of the group have specific questions, or want me to comment on group members' proposed answers to questions for one of the example ...

Re: What is the view on the Clinical Associate Psychology Masters?

I've only ever heard of positive things about the Scottish system of CAAPs, and I think it is something quite different. Most importantly, I think the bit that got people's backs up was the idea that clinical psychology doctorates were doomed, and that placing this type of qualification as a step in...

Re: Any interest in an applications webinar?

I wondered what people want to cover in the January session? Some ideas might be: 1) presenting your story at interview 2) overcoming anxiety 3) responding to a research paper 4) responding to a case vignette 5) designing research on a given topic Let me know what you want to cover. We could then se...

Re: Opinions on using notes in an interview

I'd be okay with it, except if it became a barrier in the social skills I was seeing, but I'd want to make sure the information was understood and applied to my context, rather than just noted from factual sources. We also have a task where we ask people to design a research plan or intervention and...

Re: What is the view on the Clinical Associate Psychology Masters?

Ian, I'm puzzled here - in an earlier post you say you don't have any privileged insight about changes to doctoral funding, yet by asking questions such as, "Can we work with the employers to develop 'in-service' options that cover salary and contribute to course costs?" you're talking as though ch...

Re: What is the view on the Clinical Associate Psychology Masters?

The existence of CAAPs in Scotland hasn't changed the value of CPs, or the amount of funded places. I think it is perfectly predictable that lots of cash-strapped universities are trying to create new offerings to milk the aspiring CP market of psychology graduates, but it seems a bit grandiose/pess...

Re: Mental Health Nurse working towards Counselling Psychology

There are pockets where we are less wanted/accepted or seen as a much more mixed bag (and therfore a 'rsik'- you less sure of what you getting). For example depsite being qualified and a lead in my service (and well regarded by my clinical colleagues locally) I am not eligible to be one the qualifi...

Re: Why pay a trainee?

Why is a junior doctor paid whilst they are still training? The answer in both cases is because they are doing a skilled job as well as training, and the nhs wants trainees to be able to settle in the region funding their training and to be loyal to the local service. Plus they want trainees to focu...
