Re: Forensic Psychology Student - Dissertation Ideas

I agree terrorism would be a fascinating area to explore, especially within the current climate. I'm not familiar with the literature on this but from my own interests, I would find it interesting to see if people stereotype people who commit terrorist acts i.e. who is the typical terrorist or what ...

Re: First ever AP interview in medium secure hospital!

Congrats on the interview. What you have suggested sounds great, I have a couple more suggestions but these are just more food for thought more than anything else. I think I would definitely emphasise the point previously made about reflecting how assessing risk may impact you personally and reflect...

Catch questions

Hey all.

Just wondering if anybody has used catch questions before in their research? If so is there standardised catch questions? Could anybody point me in the right direction of papers/ scales?? I've done a google search and quick lit search and nothing seems to be coming up! Thanks.

Help with developing adaptations to therapy for ASC training

Hi all.

I'd like to point out i'll be mainly focussing upon ASC in adults as most paper...

Re: Forensic Inpatient Support Worker Interview

Hi laura. Congratulations on the interview. Whilst I've worked in forensic settings it's never actually been as a support worker so perhaps what I say is more generic to forensic settings or guesses what they may focus on: Firstly, not to sound patronising but do you know what they mean by supervisi...

Re: MSc- won't finish untill 2016?

I was in a similar predicament when I applied-I put it on and put result to be obtained in your case 2016. Personally I think it's about being transparent it could be that if you are fortunate enough to get to interview then by this time you may want to reflect upon some things from the course. In w...

Re: Help with choosing statistical tests

Hey. I've not completely digested your hypotheses but if I was you I would perhaps consider reading up on multiple regression, anovas and t tests. I would recommend andy fields book and then perhaps you will feel more confident with stats and justify the decision you selected the analysis you did. G...

Re: Stuck in an interview rut

Weirdly I've just written a post on a different section of the site which is closely related to this in terms of my personal experiences. I can certainly empathise with giving the answers which you feel are wanted-I've never had a paid ap post so this usually came into effect with doctorate intervie...

Re: Applying for 2015

Hi beggarsroost. Congrats on the new job. I can empathise with your current situation- I applied 3 times and 2/3 I was in the midst of changing jobs.. It's tricky when you are changing jobs and need a reference I opted to go with my new supervisor (which was private and external to where I was worki...

Re: Research Experience...or lack of!

Hi ruby. I can perhaps offer you some reassurance that there are a few people on my course who probably have a similar amount of research experience as you if not less so it doesn't have to be a deal-breaker. It's perhaps something you can be transparent about and might be a development area which t...

Re: reading up on policy/NHS issues for AP interview

Hey. Congrats on the interview. I would be really surprised if they asked specific questions on this- whilst it may be impressive to have some awareness-I wouldn't worry too much about the ins and outs. If anything I would look up nice guidelines probably on pd, look up policies on self harm and per...

Re: To apply or not to apply

Hi Hughesa5. It certainly appears you have sufficient clinical experience so I wouldn't worry about that. I wonder if it is perhaps how you are reflecting upon this in the application which could be tweeked? It's hard to comment really without the application. And whilst research experience is unden...
