Re: Trainee PWP vs. Assistant psych

Thanks Maven, I was wondering why the message was still sat there. My apologies I should have been more specific in my response. Pay banding is equivalent (band 7) upon qualification. Whilst I appreciate there is more progression within clinical psychology, many IAPT services employ senior therapist...

Re: Trainee PWP vs. Assistant psych

I replied to your PM mango but I'm not sure it's sent as it's currently sitting in my outbox. Let me know if you haven't received it.

Re: Trainee PWP vs. Assistant psych

To offer a different slant, a PWP role could also open up opportunities to train as a High Intensity CBT therapist. I know this isn't the case in every service but many of my colleagues have progressed into these roles after 2/3 years of qualifying as a PWP. This role, in my opinion, is a career mov...

Re: Do I have a Chance?

Hi Jordan. To echo what Olive said, I would be very careful about where you apply and I would spend some time with the entry requirements for each course to ensure you meet their minimum entry criteria. I don't know this for certain (so pleasure correct me if this is inaccurate) but I am under the i...

Re: Any successful applicants without CP supervision?

I was offered 3 interviews over the last 2 years across 3 different courses and I had a different PWP as my reference each year!

Re: London Masters with a low 2:1+ years NHS work experience

While I can't comment on how flexible London university's are on admissions and whether your level of clinical experience would have any bearing on the likelihood of being accepted, I do have experience of combining a MSc with work. I completed my MSc full-time over 1 year whilst simultaneously work...

Re: Recycling your application?

Thanks GeishaWife - I'm considering that even if the application is sufficient to secure interviews, it might also be a factor that is weighed following the interview performance. Maybe there are a few things I can bump up. I honestly don't think i've developed much since last year professionally s...

Publication on your application form

Hi all. I was just wondering whether anybody had any thoughts or information about whether universities pay attention to the particular journal your article/research was published in. I guess my question is, particularly with universities who operate using a point system where a 'peer-reviewed publi...

Re: Clinical reference

I think that although it may seem favourable by some (all?) courses, I definitely don't think it's a must to stand a reasonable chance! In the last 2 rounds I have secured 3 interviews for the doctorate (for 3 different courses) and I have never had a CP write a reference. Instead I have had two PWP...

Conference travel grants

Hi all. I am presenting at a BPS conference in a few months and travel is going to cost a fortune. I was wondering if any of you were aware of any travel grants that were available which could take some of the financial pressure off?

Thanks a lot

Re: PWP vs. PhD

I guess ultimately it comes down to what fits with your interests and what you hope to gain from a position. PhD and PWP positions would both support a DClinPsy application but equally they can lead to careers in their own right. Do you have an inclination toward research or therapy? In the future c...

Re: Low-Intensity Psychological Interventions for Children a

I would imagine so. I guess its the children and young persons version of IAPT for adults, and IAPT, for a lot of people, has proved to be a great stepping stone into clinical psychology. Would I be right in thinking that the course is attached to a placement within a psychological therapies service...

Training as a DBT Therapist

Hi all. I appreciate this is a forum dedicated to Clinical Psychology but I am wondering if any of you could shed light on training/becoming accredited as a DBT Therapist. Is there a standardised route toward accreditation? I'm assuming there are some qualified DBT Therapists among the users of this...
