Re: Poems related to resilience through mental health difficulties

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts are with you. Whilst it's not directly linked to mental health, I have always loved the poem by Robert Frost - "The Road Not Taken". It talks of choice and of having taken a less travelled road. We read it out at my sister-in-law's funeral. I...

Re: My Warts & All Journey to Becoming an AP

I like this post very much🙂. I think it encapsulates what many of us have often repeated about AP posts not being "the be all and end all" and a wide variety of jobs can give people excellent and very valuable experience. I think it's brave of you to admit to having, in the past, felt &quo...

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

Faryalkhan97, please remember it is against forum rules to solicit this kind of information. What you are asking could confer an unfair advantage and the whole idea of this forum is to level the playing field.

Re: Choosing DClinPsy Thesis Topic

My research thesis was unrelated to placement, unrelated to my preferred specialism and made no difference to applications for jobs! I should qualify that last point by saying that doing such a large piece of research really cemented my research skills which was undoubtedly useful when applying for/...

Re: Application Question help

Hobbies would be part of it, but I think it goes a bit wider than that. It's important to show you have a life outside of Psychology. This section gives you the opportunity to show you as a person rather than just a psychologist (if that makes sense?). I think we all tend to cope better with work if...

Re: Selection Tests for International Applicants?

As far as I understand, all applicants have to go through the same procedure. After all, no matter who pays the fees, it is important that places go to candidates who will make good CPs.

Re: Can I apply for assistant posts before I officially graduate?

Yes, that sounds like a good plan. Remember, it's not the job title that matters so much as what you gain from a post. Good luck going forward.

Re: Can I apply for assistant posts before I officially graduate?

You can apply but, realistically, you are unlikely to be shortlisted ahead of the many tens of applicants who will already have GBC and who will likely have more experience as well. I will say again what has often been said, don't run away with the idea that AP posts are either necessary if you want...

Re: Local councillor and DClinPsy training?

The clinical doctorate is VERY intense and requires a massive amount of input. As well as the academic work (which includes a doctoral level thesis) you have placements for much of the week and teaching sessions as well. I don't want to put people off, but I think there is usually very little space ...

Re: Clinical psychology doctorate SPAIN or UK?

I'm afraid I have no knowledge about the Spanish education and training system, but I'm not sure this is going to be a simple matter of Spanish vs UK training. There are other considerations you must take into account. First, in order to train in the UK you must have a first degree that confers GBR ...

Re: Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

:evil: Here, here Lakeland. KalEll, your post is grossly offensive on so many levels. You come across as being anti woman and anti equality. You accuse Miriam of being condescending and proceed to be precisely that yourself with references to "radical feminism". Talk about pot and kettle!

Re: Trainee Psychologist- beating myself up over rookie mistake (breaching confidentiality)

I doubt there is a health professional of any description who has not had a similar experience. I know I have! All you can do now is keep the lines of communication open. Yes, talk to the client (who will hopefully see it was an honest mistake and an easy one to make) but also talk to your superviso...

Re: Foreign Master's Degrees

I don't think it's a question of British vs German degrees. It's more about whether the degree is recognized by the relevant bodies such as the BPS. If you're wanting to boost your academic profile it's best to check if the degree you're planning to do is recognised or not before embarking on a pote...

Re: Trainee PWP - Role Play

Asking for details of interview questions is against forum guidelines as it could confer an unfair advantage. There is a "mega thread" with general questions listed so maybe start with that.
