Re: Splitting and engagement in an inpatient ward

I'm glad you're finding some of it helpful! Understanding their need for control really helps me to relate and understand their behaviours too. I don't know much about holding therapy other than what I read in the book and have heard from word of mouth, but I think there's quite a bit on the interne...

Re: Completing PhD's

Thanks Charlie, that's good to know! I don't really know much about the whole PhD route so it's really helpful to get your advice and experience.

Re: Splitting and engagement in an inpatient ward

I don't want to tread on any toes of the psychology department at your workplace, so it may be worth speaking with them about what therapeutic models or strategies they may have in place to help with this young person. However, from my little experience CAMHS seem to struggle when it comes to attach...

Re: All Is Not Rosy!!

It sounds like you're in a really difficult position Intime, but it's great to hear somebody sound so passionate about making sure they're completing their role to a good standard, upholding policies whilst also looking after the care of the service users. I know you expressed that there maybe a lac...

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

1) I've found getting back into the swing of work really tough after the Christmas holidays for some reason. I think having such a long break, then a few more days of team building/birthday leave etc has thrown me. I finally got round to re-reading the potential research paper yesterday which has st...

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

1) Grrrr... stressful emails from doctorate uni's is not what I wanted just before the Christmas break.

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

I've had cake on both days 2) I'm blaming the training for the cake, I didn't find it overly helpful and slightly confusing so cake helped me through the days 3) 2.5 days left until a week of annual leave 4) The boyf argument I feel has lef...

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

1) arguing with the boyfriend before a day at work really isn't a good idea :( I've been in an awful mood, not been able to concentrate and found myself thinking things over and over 2) lesson learnt- I need to develop more strategies to learn to 'switch off' things when in sessions etc. It won't al...

Re: Readiness for training

I think your post highlights the difference between 'having enough experience' and 'being ready'. It would be worth looking into different uni's and their selection criteria, because I have in the past met a couple of trainees that had more research backgrounds (similar to yours) in comparison to cl...
