Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

When I am qualified, I never, ever, ever want to hear the words 'systematic literature review' ever ever ever again.

Re: Family planning while studying?!

As another current trainee with small child in tow, I wholeheartedly concur with what has already been said - just go for whatever you want, as anything can happen! I've been hoping for another child for years and it hasn't happened.....if it did happen while I'm training, I would be more than happy...

Re: Ecopsychology?

Hi Pink I have used some of the mindfulness exercises with clients, but I would love to get out and about more with clients too (I'm still training too, so this is not always possible!). What I loved about the workshop was the fact that we were encouraged to express our creativity in the woods, and ...

Re: Ecopsychology?

Hi Pink

I participated in an ecotherapy workshop last month - it was fantastic and I am trying to incorporate aspects of it into my work (and my life). It was run by Andy Mcgeeney - http://www.andymcgeeney.com

Highly recommended!

Re: Unconventional backstory - Would greatly appreciate advi

Lots of us (current trainees) don't have a conventional backstory - my first degree was in English Lit and I wanted to be a poet! I think we bring a different flavour to the dclinpsy courses and I think you should absolutely go for it if it is what you want to do.

Re: Clients who are unwilling to engage.

My first thoughts when reading your original post were that yes, a lot of children don't want to 'talk' when they are not sure what is expected of them, and when they are experiencing anxiety anyway - he may be unsure of what to say, and whether he will get it 'wrong'. Then I read your other posts a...

Re: OMG I'm getting old!

I really don't want to fall into the 'I'm so much older than all of you' category when I start training. But the fact remains that I will be! I discovered last night that my guitar teacher wasn't even born when I did my first degree. Aaargh.

Re: Thinking about conversion courses but where!?

I also did the conversion course with the OU and thought it was a fantastic course. Took a long time, though, but meant I could continue to work, and study in the evenings, which suited me fine.

Re: Critique of Clinpsy?

I love this forum.... It never ceases to amaze me that people get annoyed / upset when they post something (especially if it is a bit controversial) and then other people disagree with them. Surely, if you post something on a public forum, then you're fair game? I know it's been said before, but we'...
