Re: Re: Educational Psychology

RossPsych Thanks so much for your reply and insights/advice :) Very helpful as I don't know much about it. Also thought I would ask, would you or anyone else recommend something I could read, like a core book on Educational Psychology and more about the EP role as you mentioned, or is the BPS or an...

Re: Re: Educational Psychology

Hi this may be a silly question but would anyone be able to give me some advice on how interviews for assistant psychologist posts in education settings or with education boards differ to those in the Trusts/health and social care? I understand the role and sector is different and also that each jo...

I'm @RossPsych - for me twitter has proven the place to search out psychology news/latest topics of discussion (and networking of course) and Facebook I leave for friends/family stuff. As an aspiring EP (a small group of EPs for anyone interested use #twitterEPs for convo/search by profiles), I love...

Job offer, current employer, references and notice

Hi I was looking for some advice. I'm currently a support worker with a charity and I have recently been given a verbal job offer for a support worker role in the NHS. I'm in a bit of a pickle as to when to tell my current employers I'm leaving. I understand that the NHS can take a while in giving ...

Catch 22: when is it appropriate to access therapy?

EDIT: Aha! Astra already said loads of it :D in addition, if you think about what therapy might mean to these children; opening themselves up to someone, becoming vulnerable and learning to trust someone enough to deal with their worst difficulties - and then they move placement/home and all that w...

Catch 22: when is it appropriate to access therapy?

Catch 22: when is it appropriate to access therapy?

Hello all, I just wanted to start a topic to gather people's views on when someone is 'ready' to access therapeutic services (defined as a specialist service/program, rather than the principles of unconditional positive regard etc...in day to day care). I am coming at this question from the perspect...

Participants needed for study about online risk

Done! A long survey but always think Social Media research is interesting. Would personally change the colour scheme as well for questions - not sure about black writing on grey background?

Good luck with the research!
