Re: Service-users/clients/?

And also maybe it accentuates the power difference...........

Re: Service-users/clients/?

Hmmm, Mikel - yes, and when we're not at work, how professional do we 'have' to be.............. But - I wonder if in work it doesn't matter whether the 'client' can hear what we say, because from a certain standpoint the language we use is a frame of reference defining how we think about, perceive,...

Re: Demographic Questionnaires

He's from Algeria, but Berber not Arab, and considers himself 'white' (rather than 'Arab' or 'black' which many o...

Re: Disclosing children on form

Hi Sparkling Just to say thinking of you and wishing your little girl all the best tomorrow. And hat currently taken off and staying off, very impressive you're doing your form with a baby, let alone with the hospital visits! It is indeed so hard to see your baby in need of hospital care, though the...

Re: Applying for 2015

I think that sometimes just putting away your first draft, and starting from scratch on another one can be useful, otherwise you can end up editing and re-editing what you've written without actually changing any of it significantly or being able to see which bits to keep and which to get rid of.......

Astra, very sorry to hear about your friend. Life can really throw some tough twists and turns in. I hope you got to have your cry/moan/hug and eating goodies session and are feeling if not a little better, at least loved and satiated!

Re: CRB - I have cannabis warning

Hey Cortex that's such great news, you must have a huge sense of relief! :D As far as I know the check would be the same as it's an 'advanced' check, so hopefully this means you can now put this behind you and not have it as an added worry when applying for jobs/training! (As you say, it's not exact...

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

Oh no Geishawife, what a horrible experience....even when said in ignorance, that kind of thing is hurtful and needs addressing. I hope 'tackling' has gone ok!! Someone in my close family circle, when I discussed marrying my (now) husband, said 'oh but if you have children they'll be half-cast'........
