Re: Plans for the year ahead

My understanding of Purpledot's post, which I am also intrigued about is if a course only asks for a 2:1 and doesn't state a high 2:1, will more points be awarded to those who got for example a 68/69 (high 2:1) than those who got a 61/61 (low 2:1)? Or will it just be the same amount of points depsi...

Re: Managing application anxiety

Before my interview, my current supervisor (a clinical psychologist) gave me a very helpful task to do. She asked me to write down 50 positive things about myself, and told me to go through it the night before the interview. I have to admit I cheated a bit and got my OH to help with the list, but i...

Landmark Forum-any thoughts?

Just wondering if any of you have come across the Landmark Forum as I have a friend who's really found it amazing but who'ex regards it as a cult! From what I can make out it sounds like a great money-making scheme. I assume I can regard it as LGAT (large group awareness training) and am wondering w...

Re: Assistant Groups

Hi Will!

The email isn't working - I gather she's left her post now...............Hmm, I could just call the CAMHS number and see who I get, (something to do later this week) but was hoping I'd find someone on here who was keen on creating a group or actively involved in one!

Thanks,

Amina

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

Firstly-Miriam, how are you doing now? Is the tooth out?! Hope you've actually made yourself rest and made the most of the slow time!! 1- I've been offered a job! After (5 years!!) of being a stay-at-home/work-from-home (a bit!) mum, I now have a real, decently paid, reasonably related to health/psy...

Mental Health and culture....

I'm interested to hear people's thoughts on this topic - it's something I've pondered for many years. The extent to which our 'evidence-based' interventions are Western-centric and how we can take account of different cultures and ideas. How applicable are the Clinical Psychologist roles/values/teac...

Re: The Support Worker Chasm

Hi! Just a really quick post to say that the role of a CP is a lot to do with training/advising/supervising/managing etc so actually a more senior role like the one you're describing could give you plenty of valuable experience. AND Also being able to reflect on your role, service structure, thinkin...

Re: Difference between covering letter and personal statemen

Hmmm, as far as I know a covering letter is usually submitted with a CV and is a brief outline of why you're interested in /suitable for a job. It's your way of introducing yourself in a more personal way than with just a CV. A personal statement is part of an application form and is usually lengthi...

Re: how long do I have to struggle on a low wage

Evening sophjc91 I think many people here can empathise as it's certainly tough finding decent-paid jobs which will build up your experience on the path towards Clinical Psychology. It can be frustrating when you feel that academically you've proved yourself and not only that, but also backed this u...
