Re: CRB - I have cannabis warning

I think they just want to know that you are not a risk to patients. I am sure it will be fine.

Re: Putting life on hold

You're certainly not alone and I think mid-PhD is a key time to have thoughts like that (although believe me they recur later too) - you're probably working 80+ hours a week on a very low income with uncertain prospects while your friends all appear to be progressing in their lives and living in rel...

Re: Speech and language therapy for psychology graduates

A bit odd that they would limit their pool of potential students like that. I am sure people with backgrounds in linguistics, anatomy, biology etc would also make good SaLTs.

Re: Refused travel expenses because I declined the job

If they didn't make it clear they should pay up. I got transatlantic travel expenses refunded when I didn't take an academic job.

Re: Do I have right experience for PWP/assistant psychologis

If you want to go into Clinical Neuropsychology then you might find a job as a Healthcare Assistant or Support Worker in a Neurology or Neurorehabilitation ward, an RA post working on neuropsychological research or an Assistant Psychologist post in a Neuropsychology department are more up your stree...

Re: Brain Injury Worksheets for Acquired Dyslexia?

If he is anxious how about a relaxation CD to practise everyday?

I am not sure which other cognitive/emotional difficulties he has/you want to work on but you might find some ideas in

Powell & Malia (2003) The Brain Injury Workbook.

You could also try asking SaLT and OT for ideas.

Re: Psychometrics Text

I think saying you are "familiar" with particular tests implies that you have used them or at least observed their use rather than just read about them online. I don't think you need to be naming specific psychometric tests in a clin psych application, especially if you have never used them. Better ...

Re: How do you dress for work?

Skirt top cardigan shoes. Nothing tight, short, low-cut or too formal looking (e.g. I wouldn't wear a suit and rarely wear a jacket). I think it depends a lot on the setting. If I were in child I would probably wear more bright colours and if in inpatient I think I would wear trousers and flat-shoes...

Re: Anyone want 'The Psychologist' issues

I think Professor Narinder Kapur is involved in sending psychology text books out to developing countries. I don't know whether he would be interested in them but you could ask him.

Re: Cross-discipline dilemma re supervision/'CBT' practice

To throw out a strange metaphor, its like Capri Sun or Sunny D being marketed as "healthy juice". Sure, its superficially similar in appearance and packaging, has some added vitamins, and some of the ingredients once came from an orange, but it really isn't juice as I'd define it and I'd not want m...

Re: Therapists who practise outside their training/competenc

Yes I do PsychedOut (described above). Should I stop? I can't see that this would benefit anyone. Should people get outraged about it? The people who have branded EMDR and ACT might get pretty cross about my diluting the brands. I suspect this is at least partially financially motivated though. Shou...
