Re: Realities

Good grief. Someone is a little bitter and angry aren't they? Sorry myotai but the others are right - not all IAPT services are like that and there are development/ progression opportunities in many cases. Just because you have a strong opinion, it doesn't make it a fact.

Re: High Intensity application - personal statement

If it says it is limited to 4000 characters, I doubt it'll let you paste more when you transfer from another document. Maybe give it a try...

Re: Senior PWP post

As a trainee and a PWP I have always been supervised by a senior PWP. I'm talking about case management supervision, not clinical. I think that's the norm. It has a lot of advantages and when I have had other practitioners e.g. HI Therapists, step in, it wasn't as good. Seniors understand the role a...

Re: Applying for qualified posts whilst still a trainee

It shouldn't have any impact (though it might make them nervous). I think you could just resubmit - doing it in your own time obviously. Remember you wouldn't have access to the same clinical notes once you moved.

Re: Senior PWP post

Hi Sam. I'm currently a senior PWP. My main advice would be to approach the interview with a manager's hat on i.e. focus on things like KPIs, overcoming performance issues, delivering supervision, rather than with a PWP/ clinical hat on. (Saying that, I have never been to an IAPT interview without b...

Re: Applying for qualified posts whilst still a trainee

It is certainly possible, in fact it seems to happen regularly. A lot of services start advertising for PWPs early summer with the intention of securing the good soon-to-be qualified PWPs. The adverts usually say "suitable for newly qualified" and you would need to outline where you are up to in you...

Outcome measures for people with learning disabilities

Hi, I wondered if anybody has ever used or come across adapted measures for use with people with learning disabilities (PHQ-9, GAD-7, phobia scales and work & social adjustment scale)? I've done some trawling but can't find anything that I can pick up and use. I'm sure somebody must have developed t...

Maybe they're finally updating it. The "news" section had information from 2010!

Re: Research involvement as a PWP?

I'm a PWP in a NHS service and it's not something I've come across. A few of us did carry out a focus group (and write a report) as part of our plan to improve access for hard to reach groups but it wasn't research per se. Can you remember who the job was with?

Re: need advice on becoming an IAPT Trainee PWP in West Midl

Hi Grace. I'm a qualified PWP working in the West Mids. I'm by no means an expert but I will try to help! Firstly, yes, trainee roles should state 'trainee' in the title. Trainee posts will most likely be advertised any time now until September. I think I interviewed around June. I believe that the ...

Psychology Tools. This one is more for professionals but there are some good information sheets you can give to clients too.
