Re: educational psychology to clinical/counselling psych

I don't think it is worth doing another doctorate. There are plenty of organisations that would happily take you on as an EP, but let you train in DDP and develop additional competencies (may private providers may not get good quality CP and CoP applicants and would probably be more open to consider...

Re: Emma Kenny, Jo Hemmings and concerns re "Celebrity psychologists"

Members of the forum might be interested to know that I was reported to the HCPC for hosting this thread, and wrote a blog about my experience . The ACP are also interested in hearing from anyone that has concerns or personal experiences of "psychologists" outside the scope of practitioner regulation.

Re: Taxonomy of psychological variables

I'm not sure what to advise you search in terms of terminology for psychological functioning beyond blanket terms like "mental health" or "psychological wellbeing". I've started to think we are not very good at defining or using consistent terminology or measuring the same constructs in psychologica...

Re: Autism Research (Advanced)

I don't mean to be unfriendly, but this is a forum for people who aspire to or already work in clinical psychology in the UK, so you might not get the discussion you are after here.

Re: Autism Research (Advanced)

I'm a bit confused, are you aspiring to study clinical psychology in the UK? Do you have a question for our forum members about clinical psychology? Or are you just keen to share your personal experience as a person with autism studying autism?

Re: Standardised academic reference 10 years post MSc

It could also be someone you have done research with, or written a paper with, who feels able to mention your past grades and capability. Whilst the supervisor from a degree or postgrad course is the most obvious source, it doesn't have to come from a university as far as I understand it. See here f...

Re: Applying in the US and UK

You'll know if you've been shortlisted for interview for a UK course by 12th March, but you are right that the interviews take place from 15th March to 28th May, and the final date for offers of NHS places to be sent out by is 4th June. So you'll need to decide which way you are going after hearing ...

Re: Non-EEA Funding

You'd need the right to live and work in the UK first and foremost, if that is your intention, and the government seem to be making that harder and harder for people from outside the EU (and will soon make it harder for those inside the EU also). Visas and other costs make it a very expensive place ...

Gosh Miriam I remember when you had your babies! Hope they settle in to secondary school. And congratulations on the grant, great that your business keeps going from strength to strength.
Thanks Lakeland. Kids remind us how fast time passes, I think.

Re: Proving informed consent in studies done in the community

You haven't given the information that is needed to answer the question, I'm afraid. Who is conducting the research? A university, an NHS trust, a charity, a private provider, an independent researcher? What data is being collected and from whom? Does it include "personal data" under the data protec...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1) I'm also a Mum with mixed feelings about return to school. Mine are starting secondary, so that feels really grown up too. It seems only a blink since they were toddlers. 2) Time has gone really wonky since March. I can't tell days of the week or what month it is since I've been working from home...

Re: Work/volunteer experience

I'd start with support work/care work as the easiest way to get local paid work in convenient shifts as lots of care jobs are desperate to recruit, in old people's homes, children's residential care, services for people with learning disabilities etc. And there is still demand in charity sector role...

Re: Being Foreign in the Field

There are loads of "foreign" APs and PWPs, but nobody - British-born or otherwise - gets these posts without at least a year of experience and very good applications as they are incredibly competitive. I wrote a blog about how bad most applications are and the simple things that can be changed to ge...

Hopefully they'll be more amenable if you are only asking about your final year and will find a way to arrange things so that you can complete the course. Whilst they are never keen to disrupt the typical patterns or set precedents that might allow other people to delay, you have a disability that t...
