Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

Just read this and will be writing to HMRC so thank you OP!

I was wondering if people had enclosed a photocopy of their DClinPsy award certificate (at the end of training) as proof of student status? And photocopies of payslips?

Thank you!

Re: How do you dress for work?

I think Enid is talking about the IoP course, but please correct me if I'm wrong.... IoP does ask trainees to dress smart/casual whilst on the campus. This is because IoP teaching facilities are based at Denmark Hill where the Maudsley is and where a lot of trainees have placements too. As it is all...

WAIS-IV discrepancies?

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me? I'm looking at the neuropsych results of a patient on the WAIS-IV and I can't recall how big the discrepancies need to be before the FSIQ is non-interpretable. Does anyone know this?

Re: Relaxation and severe cognitive impairment

Thank you for the replies guys - it's all really helpful information for me to have a look into. Anecdotally, I know relaxation is helpful with acquired brain injury patients but I wanted some information on literature. You've certainly given me some avenues to explore. Thanks :)

Relaxation and severe cognitive impairment

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has any journal articles/experience of using relaxation with an individual with severe cognitive impairments? The person has an acquired brain injury so would be unable to self-initate the use of relaxation, but could be prompted to use relaxation techniques when agitat...

Re: Msc - BPS Accredited??

Hi Just to add a bit more information for OP as I completed this MSc at UH in 2009. My understanding of ESRC 3+1 funding was that if you wanted to go on and do a PhD then you would be exempt from the some of the more standard research methods teaching part of your PhD if you wanted to go down that r...
