Re: Anyone ever 'transferred' from a DClin?

I've known people who stayed at their university for teaching, but who transferred their placement and research to another university 'patch' and were supervised on their thesis in that 'new' geographical area. HTH.

Re: What you're thinking v what you say

It's always a bit awkward when something falls flat, isn't it? We've many of us been there, so if you can I'd try and take it as an available learning opportunity if you like to, but otherwise I would try to put it behind you. I shudder to think how many randomly uneducated/inexperienced/insulting/d...

Bristol, definitely. They are integrating their training with the later QiCN path (or rather, their equivalent).

Re: What you're thinking v what you say

I wrote such a long reply and sadly it was all wiped out by a glitch that is making me log in after every reply. Horrors. I won't rewrite it all, which is a shame because I had put a lot of thought into it, but in a much longer form I wrote that it wasn't so much a nerve that had been touched as a p...

Re: What you're thinking v what you say

What someone might say is, "that's a really funny story!" What I'm actually thinking is, " Man I hope I never run into you in real life because that level of judgey-pantsing just does not float my boat". :roll: In order to not just bite and leave, I'll offer up: Saying: "Sure I can take on that extr...

Re: Offering help reviewing applications for marginalised applications

No, I was thinking very loosely about the point rather than directly to whether ethnicity affects the posts that come up. I meant more that, on top of the scarcity of relevant and geographically manageable posts, comes the additional barriers of being BAME or other factors which affect the likelihoo...

I work with some CLIC Sargent social workers who work into our hospital. They're based here full time with paediatric oncology.

Re: Overqualified - rejected for honorary AP post

I'm sorry for everyone that reads me writing this LOTS :-) but just to remind people (in capitals) HALF OF MY TRAINING COHORT HAD NEVER BEEN AN NHS AP. ALMOST HALF HAD NEVER BEEN ANY SORT OF AP. Hope this helps. Many ways to skin a cat. Very best of luck - try project work (substance misuses agencie...

Re: Are distance learning BSc courses viewed differently by admissions?

Hi,

I and a goodly number of my OU cohort registered with OU with a clear plan for DClinPsy applications, and we all (in our small group) got places relatively quickly on completion. I'd do the full BSc for what it's worth and do it slowly to manage the cost/get a great grade. x

Re: Dress code when working clinically: Appropriate "masculine" clothing?

Hi Roz, I wasn't sure reading your post whether you meant, is there an appropriate/typical 'masculine' dress code for male trainees who work in clinical psychology, or whether you meant (and which I took you to mean the first reading), is there a way to dress smartly/appropriately for work in clinic...

Re: What justifies your belief that CP is the right career for you?

I'm aware that the OP did not return after that post, and I'm wondering what that is about (not enough time to tit around on a website forum/choice to 'dump and run' - always a valid decision/chose to read but not respond to the replies). I am left wondering what the OP made of the responses, and wh...

Re: Clients answering phone during session

It's so hard to check where we're at ourselves, recognize that and manage it, right there in the session, isn't it? Possibly you're right in that they may well have been checking your response. I have said directly to clients in my own sessions that I felt that they were doing X,Y,Z to check my resp...

Re: What justifies your belief that CP is the right career for you?

I guess, for me, I never lost sight of what I wanted to do, so I don't know if that's much help to you. I studied as a mature student with children. I wasn't bankrolled by family or a well-earning partner, and I tolerated the anxiety of not knowing if it would work out by electing for a position of ...
