Re: AP interviews in Neurological Care and Older adult's MH team

You might want to think about the issue of capacity, how it assessed and the implications if people seem to lack capacity. The Mental Capacity Act would be a good starting point.

Re: Clinical psychology with a learning difficulty?

I have to say, this sounds downright prejudiced and discriminatory and the person concerned needs to be taken to task on it. I am disgusted by this person's attitude towards you (and by extension other people with a disability). You have reached the age of 32 before being diagnosed, so it seems to m...

Re: Degree pedigree

Thanks. That’s really encouraging. I was considering the Leeds Trinity Course as it’s very affordable and it would mean I could afford the MRes afterwards if things worked out. It’s also taught in the evenings which is ideal but then I got hit with a tirade of negativity on another forum. They basi...

Re: Degree pedigree

It doesn't matter at all where you obtain your degree(s). The courses are more interested in your grade and what you get from it than in where you studied. Given this, what matters most is that you get the best possible grade and that depends (at least in part) on the suitability of the course for y...

Re: Rejected 5 times, am I overreacting?

I would echo what people have said about getting feedback, mock interviews etc. I would also add that the fact you are getting interviews suggests you are able to express yourself well on paper, so it is worth reflecting on why that seems to change in an interview setting. Do you need to allow yours...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

To everyone who has sent their lovely thoughts and wishes during this difficult time with my sister-in-law, just to let you know she passed away peacefully and with her family at her side in the early hours of this morning. We are grateful for how she passed and that she had all 3 of her boys with h...

Re: Retraining from a different health profession

Several people in my cohort had been in a different health care profession prior to training. One had been a physio, one an OT and 3 had been nurses (both RMN and RGN) so it is certainly possible. You need to be able to reflect on your experience thus far and how it makes you a good candidate for tr...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

Thank you so much, everyone who has sent such warm wishes and love regarding my sister-in-law. She has rallied enough to be discharged home with the palliative care team following her up there. Her condition is terminal, but not imminent (if that makes sense??) so we are in a sort of "how long is a ...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1) My very dear sister-in-law is very ill in hospital with "complications" from treatment for her secondary cancer. Despite being so poorly, she remains one of the most positive people I have ever met. I am totally in awe of her strength of will and determination. 2) So grateful my youngest nephew w...

Re: Assistant Practitioner Vs Assistant Psych

I agree with Miriam, if you are offered the role take it. Do remember that you can develop many clinically relevant skills in jobs other than AP. Many people get on to the doctoraate every year without ever having beeen an AP. It's not about the job title, it's about what you make of it and how you ...

Re: Scrambled Eggs

First of all, slow down and take a deeo breath! I sense that you are getting a little "knotted up" with all your questions and you're almost talking yourself out of things before you've even started getting into them! So, relax a little bit and you'll make more sense of things. First of all, your ag...

Re: Postgrad CBT course is being a support worker enough ex?

I agree 100% with Lingua. FOCUS ON THE HERE AND NOW!! Any number of changes could take place in the next few years (in you, in IAPT, in the selection criteria, etc) and advice given now is irrelevant to then! You really are better off forgetting "what next" and focusing on the only thing you can con...

Re: Postgrad CBT course is being a support worker enough ex?

I'm confused! In a post in the Psychology Degree sectin from earlier this month you state you are just starting your degree!! You cannot have obtained a degree in less than a month! So, do you have a degree or not?
