Re: South Wales 2016

Hey all Congrats on your place on the South Wales course! I trained in South Wales and would say for the bristolians to think quite carefully about commuting in from there as its a tough slog. It's fine if you've got placements in Cardiff/Newport but further afield is going to be a long commute. Als...

Re: The NHS in Wales

Wales have the 'mental health measure' which shapes mental health services and forms a key difference between it and England. I would start there, it will open up a wealth of literature about welsh NHS which you can use a basis to compare. Hope that helps x

Re: Audio-books/podcasts for the car

I would wholeheartedly recommend 'This American Life'- it's the people who made the serial podcast. It's such interesting content if you are interested in american culture and generally just human stories. The fact that a new podcast is released every Monday- makes Mondays easier to bear!! x

I'd recommend Andy Field's 'how to design and report research experiments' book. He gives lots of worked through examples to try x

Re: Therapy/Therapists media portrayal

Yeh I figured there would be no problem with child psychologist title it's more the fact that she seems to have her fingers in some many pies. But I nearly gagged when the said she was a clinical psychologist. It's the fourth episode in and I'm not sure if they introduced her as that before. Here's ...

Re: Therapy/Therapists media portrayal

The emma kenny plot thickens... She now features on 'the year of making love' on bbc3 and is introduced as a clinical psychologist which is interesting. Also found this where she is called a child psychologist http://www.primarytimes.net/parent_times_news_0085_PottyTrainingTips.php#.US0ij_ogFaA She ...

So being based in bangor doesn't necessarily mean your placement will be close by...

bristol (now bath) course

I've looked around to try and find the answer and wonder if anyone could enlighten me about why the bristol course went away and then was replaced with bath a few years later?
