Re: Advantages of therapy delivered by a CP

On the contrary, it is easy to believe but much, much harder to demonstrate that either quality (or level, or type) of training or the quality (or amount or type) of supervision lead to measurably better outcomes for clients. If you are referring to my post, I stated delivery of therapy meaning fid...

Re: Reserve list for places 2020

Does anyone know if Salomons has offered out any extra places this year yet? Not sure about Salomons but a lot of courses let reserves know last Friday. However, some further places have yet to be finalised between HEE and courses (this is mainly decisions of adjacent courses take what places) - so...

Re: Advantages of therapy delivered by a CP

Apologies if this isn’t in the right place. For a client accessing therapy (let’s say something like ACT or CFT), what are the advantages of such therapies delivered by a CP versus a counsellor/psychotherapist? I realise individual competence comes into it, and a CP role is far more than delivering...

Re: Increased number of training places

For those interested, there is a twitter thread answering further questions: https://twitter.com/DCPPreQual/status/1268238772543590401 Laura Golding (Programme Director of Liverpool) tweeted: My expectation is that HEE will offer 25% more places to every DClin programme in England but it may take a ...

Re: Increased number of training places

It seems like courses are waiting to see the offer of commissioned places but it looks like things are moving faster than I thought they would.

Re: Increased number of training places

Thanks for posting - I saw the email from the DCP which mentioned this is for September 2020. Anyone know how that would work given places have already been offered and accepted? Will they open up the reserve lists? Probably depends on the timings of when places get released, but most likely course...

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

Like many others on this forum, I can attest to the ups and downs of this process. Seeing other people share their varied experiences has often helped me, so I'm sharing this in the hope it does the same for someone else.

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

As a course interviewer, we checked photo ID in our interviews. Although some candidates may choose to cheat, this is harder than you think (if it is the candidate). Firstly, it is obvious to the interviewer if the person is looking away from the camera and I did ask someone whether they had notes a...

Re: Face to face interview amidst pandemic!!

It does seem a bit irresponsible when interviews can be undertaken online. All the courses for trainee clinical psychologist jobs have! As Ell, said would it be worth contacting HR of Birmingham & Solihull MH Trust? But also, this must be part of a course, what university is sanctioning this too and...

Re: Video Interviews

Hi, I somehow managed to get two interviews this year and this is my first year of applying. Both universities have now confirmed that the interview will be online; this has increased my anxiety levels as I have never done Doctorate interview nor an online interview. I feel that I cannot present my...

Re: Video Interviews

Online interviews are being discussed in clinical course teams. Many universities have already chosen to stop face to face teaching these coming weeks and have lectures via tech platforms e.g. Zoom/Skype for rest of academic term. I would prepare so you imagine what is it like answering questions to...

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

Also, why would they send out the email that early? Ruthless. Er, don't know. One guess could be because UCL and most univeristies are on strike for pay & equality + pensions today (and this week)? So many staff aren't working and they are still doing their best to let you know despite these condit...

Re: UCL PWP February intake. Any news?

Hi? What questions were you asked? If you don’t mind me asking. They may not mind but it is against forum rules to ask about specific interview questions. https://www.clinpsy.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10 13.)

Re: Edinburgh Interview Feedback

Unless you are looking for emotional support or to vent your anger, I am not sure why you have posted this. Surely, you need to be addressing this with the Edinburgh course - if you want feedback only they can help you with this or if you are unhappy with their response time then they are ones to co...
