2. Feel the need to buy stationary (this is a common theme when I feel overwhelmed- if the massive to do list is written in a new notebook with a new pen it doesn’t seem quite as bad...)

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

I no longer feel that Pride as a movement is supportive of lesbian women, and this recognition/belief coupled with a discussion with some friends last year made me recognise that lesbian women have always been the poor relation in terms of representation, funded research and supported activism by th...

Re: Any advice on a shorter route?

Hello Yana, Can you tell me whether you have applied to the DClinPsy yet, and if so how far have you got with that? As you'll be aware, courses that confer the title of Clinical Psychologist in other countries can be very different to the training required in the UK to work in this role, and it can ...

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

1. I have stopped attending Pride for strongly held political reasons, and the discussion above makes me feel sad that I no longer believe that Pride represents all of us. I don't think, looking back, that it ever really did, but that has become more apparent to me over the last few years. 2. I have...

Re: Fixed term contract and pregnancy

Not going to be any help here, but there is pressure on UK employers to make the maternity policies re pay less opaque. There is the continual effort to stop women employees getting pregnant by hiding access to important information like this, and it does make me extremely cross. I hope you find the...

Re: Interview Feedback

I'm going to offer up an alternate view on the mentioning about sex, and say that I find that appropriate. It sounds like the interviewer, on that point, was trying to share their hypothesis about why they might have not found you to be explaining very well how you felt about a specific situation, a...

Re: BABCP CBT accreditation during DClinPsy

Workingspouse did this (the BABCP accreditation off the back of the DClinPsy) and was pleased they did. There was a bit of to-ing and fro-ing about evidencing the hours and teaching, but all went through. Hope this helps.

Re: How do I become a clinical neuropsychologist?

Re: How do I become a clinical neuropsychologist?

Hi Mungle,
I’m really sorry that I just saw this. I’ll do a proper reply to this later today or this week if not. Hope it’s not too ridiculously late to be of use.

Re: Help me pick a doctorate course

I loved Newcastle and I got a lot from it, but if you're looking to go very person centred I wouldn't think it was quite what you're after. It was really fab for teaching about research and I feel I got a really good grounding (comparative to friends on other courses at the same time, or so they sai...

Re: DCLIN 2019 Newcastle - reference

I had some really late references for Newcastle, and ended up submitting three (my 'most recent' which is required, wasn't all that relevant as I'd done a few different things on route to clinical psychology and it wasn't a problem. HTH anyone searching this in future.

Re: Am I doing the right thing ?

Just chipping in to add my usual quote that - over half of my doctoral cohort had never been an AP or RA. I took a bit of a circuitous route via counselling, then via NHS management of a rehab service and came to clinical psychology slightly later than the average (entry to course at 34.5 years). If...

Re: Participants wanted: Childhood experiences and personality traits.

Actually, on consideration I have mailed the supervisor. I don't feel that a questionnaire that gives specific examples of types of abuse and asks the respondent to state how often this happened and how they felt about it is suitable for general completion without a very different piece of participa...

Re: Participants wanted: Childhood experiences and personality traits.

I think the preparatory statement: 'Although it is unlikely, you may experience some emotional distress when completing questions regarding any experience of physical, emotional and sexual abuse' is entirely unsupportable. Some of the examples you ask about are very specific and will certainly not b...
