Re: Registration for an AP role?

No post should require you to join the BPS, and it seems a bit meaningless to ask for any form of registration when you are not a regulated professional, especially if that wasn't a requirement for the advertised post. I'd speak to the supervisor or the person that interviewed you rather than the HR...

Re: Student with foreign degree

Do you mean as a self-funded candidate? If so, don't be too daunted as the level of competition is not quite the same as for NHS funded places. I'd just focus on getting some UK experience, ideally in the NHS and/or with supervision from a CP, so you get to know the psychology and service landscape ...

Re: HELP . . . Postgrad CBT academic screening written test

Hi San, welcome to the forum. However, we don't allow people to solicit or provide insights into any form of assessment that are not already in the public domain, so please keep this general. We also ask people not to make the same post in multiple places on the forum, so I have deleted your other p...

Re: Service Evaluation - publication journal

Something general about the client group or professions involved? For example, the BPC clinical psychology forum would probaly consider this within scope.

Re: Getting a mortgage on the DClinPsy

To a mortgage company, training is three years of guaranteed income that ends in a qualification that will increase your salary and make you a professional that is in shortage and will mean you have secure employment for the rest of your working life. So I'd go for it asap. The process will take a w...

Re: CPs, do you feel like you make a real difference in people’s lives?

Yeah, I think what I do is meaningful in lots of ways. I think I've helped social workers and courts to make better informed decisions about children's lives that make a huge impact for individual children and families. I'm far from the only factor that affects the outcome, and the results are compl...

Re: Am I being realistic?

You need relevant experience, normally at least 12 months full time equivalent, and generally the most relevant posts are only available after getting your GBC qualification. You will also benefit from increased knowledge of how services are configured in the UK. The doctoral courses are highly comp...

Re: Best route to the DClinPsy

I'm also someone that uses my pre-qualified experiences, though I thought at the time they were the least relevant possible! I wanted to do clinical work with children and took an AP post doing research about older people with dementia, but sure enough those skills have come around to being hugely r...

Looks like a great paper that captures the key issues on a divisive topic. Thanks for doing the work, and for returning to share your findings.

A copy of my own paper please

I'd like a copy of this paper I co-authored https://doi.org/10.1016/j.childyouth.2023.107353 in the published pdf format, but for some reason my university login is playing up. Can anyone send it to me vis PM or email please.

Re: Best route to the DClinPsy

Yes, my blog about how not to apply for jobs in clinical psychology would be helpful, also the post with the metaphor about getting a cleaner can be helpful in understanding what it really means to tailor your application (the search term "toilets" brings it up easily).

Re: Best route to the DClinPsy

Yeah, I wasn't suggesting you were looking for shortcuts. Quite the opposite - you were making the route seem longer and more arduous than it needs to be. I just wanted to highlight that saying it can be easier and shorter doesn't mean that the easiest and shortest route is the best option!

Re: Best route to the DClinPsy

Yes, this ^^^^ I've known people go from being a fresh graduate with a job in costa coffee to AP to training in 18 months. What it takes is well-tailored applications that show you've researched the role you are applying for and have transferable skills, and then making the most of every opportunity...
