Re: Ieso Digital Health - Online CBT

I don't have personal experience but I've referred a lot of clients to them, and my best friend was a patient through IESO. I've only heard good things.

Re: Book recommendation for formulation

I use Assessment & Case Formulation in CBT 2nd edition by Corrie, Townend and Cockx (currently doing my IAPT HI), or Formulation in Psychology & Psychotherapy 2nd edition by Johnstone & Dallos which is broader and covers formulations across different disciplines (e.g. CBT, systemic, psychodynamic, n...

Re: Psychology Degree Advice

My advice would be to read primary sources extensively outside of the course materials when working on assignments, synthesise information and think critically about everything. Also, try to use contemporary research in assignments as much as possible. Mention classic studies if necessary, but go i...

Re: A question for the cat owners of ClinPsy

I think the most important thing is that the introduction is gradual and you are able to be around for the first few days or so to help them feel at ease and get acquainted. As they are similar in temperament (especially since you described them as placid!) I would imagine it will be OK, probably ev...

Re: Academic Referee Guidance

Have you been able to contact the initial referee to give them a polite nudge, and were they aware of the deadline when you first asked them? I haven't had this problem myself when I applied last year as my academic referee was very on the ball. But I'm sure it's obvious to the Clearing House that y...

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

Hey Victoriomantic. Sounds like you have made your decision, and I’m not trying to be persuasive here, but I started training this year after finishing the HI course in June and there has been opportunity to work toward full accreditation In the first year which I am doing. Might not be the case wi...

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

Thank you Esuma, that's a great idea :) She's met one of my colleague's dogs in previous treatment with us so I might start there as a recap but would love to bring in other dogs. One of our managers has a beautiful dog who is very sweet but he's quite big so I imagine bringing him in would be a lot...

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

Congratulations Ell! 1. Made the difficult decision not to apply for the doctorate this year after getting so close last year. I need to focus on passing HI and actually really should spend the 1 year consolidating these skills and working towards full CBT accreditation. It is a weight off to make t...

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

Lingua as usual your posts make me laugh and smile! That skirt sounds adorable and I definitely understand your point #3. I'm not arthritic but I have a Vitamin D insufficiency that causes similar-ish symptoms to my mum's arthritis and I'm only 26. I often think there is more wrong with my knees tha...
