Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

Does anyone know if this applies across all of the UK? I'm based in Scotland and wonder if this is the same for those of us who studied up here?

Beck Youth Inventory 2nd Edition

Hi everyone We currently don't have a manual for the above measure (we're going to order a new one) but I have a completed questionnaire that I'd like to score! I was wondering if anyone could tell me the T-scores for a 15 year old girl with raw scores of: 22 on BSCI-Y, 42 on BAI-Y and 38 on BDI-Y. ...

Re: Edinburgh doctorate - Location of placements

You might want to speak to Ailie Castle, the local area tutor in Tayside. She would be the one who would know what the current policy is. Certainly, they initially said that if it was videoconferenced we had to attend in Dundee no matter where we lived. But there are 2 trainees who live in Edinburgh...

Re: Edinburgh doctorate - Location of placements

I'm a Tayside trainee so will try to answer some of your questions. There have been trainees who have stayed in Edinburgh and commuted and the health board does try to accommodate this to a degree, but you have to bear in mind that you may still end up on a placement based at Stracathro Hospital whi...

Re: Edinburgh interview short-listing process

Not sure if this means anything, but the future of Scotland with the possibility of independence hasn't been raised in our professional issues teaching at all. I'd imagine if they don't expect soon-to-be-qualified trainees to know the ins and outs of the issue, they probably won't expect prospective...

Re: Weird food combinations

Whenever I go to the cinema, I always have minstrels and ready salted crisps and mix them together. Yum :)

Also, slices of cheese with smarties. Totally unhealthy but rather tasty :)

CTQ query

Hi everyone, I'm in the midst of thesis at the moment and had a question about the CTQ (childhood trauma questionnaire) short form, which I'm using for my research. Unfortunately, I don't have the manual and my supervisor is notoriously difficult to get a response from (still waiting for answers fro...

Re: Matrix - NHS Scotland

The Matrix is about providing a summary of the evidence base for psychological therapies across different specialties, so in some ways it is more comparable with the NICE or SIGN guidelines than IAPT - unless I'm missing something about IAPT?

Re: How do I find a Psychologist with an EEG

Would getting in touch with the Psychology department at your nearest university not be your best bet?

Re: Edinburgh interview short-listing process

[quote= I've heard similar re importance. But only 15 places this year? Last year it was 28. :shock: Yeah places change from year to year depending on NHS funding, number of trainees and CP's in every health board etc. last year was a large number, this year is smaller, and next year will be larger...

Journal Access: Child & Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of Am

Was wondering if anyone else has access to this article? Neither my NHS or Uni log in gives me access and my google-fu seems to have failed me :(

Re: Edinburgh aligned course?

The idea behind the 5 year course was that in essence the health board would get 2 years of having a trainee working for their service in addition to the 3 years of training. It was set up that everyone had the same first year and then 5 year trainees would start being split between their work compo...

Re: Edinburgh aligned course?

You have the same core placements of older adults, adult, child and LD in first and second year, then everyone has a specialist year. For aligned trainees it's expected that their final year will be in their aligned specialty. It's also expected that your thesis will be in your aligned speciality. T...

Re: The reality of being a psychology graduate

I think the question of offering honorary posts is a bit of a contentious issue - the more people work for free, the less likely management is to realise that there is an unmet need within a service and actually give out money to hire a paid assistant. I agree with Lakeland that what this leads to i...

Re: Alternative Handbook 2014 Now Available

Out of interest, to those who've had a look at it, did many trainees from Edinburgh Uni give feedback? I filled it in last year but can't remember if anything came round for this year's one or not. A year into the introduction of video conferencing, there are still some issues around its implementat...
