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

1) How many packets of crisps is too many to eat before lunch?
2) French fries are an underrated crisp
3) Where is my motivation today?
4) Can't believe it's 10 years since I got on the DClin. 10 years!
5) I'm old

Re: CAMHS Interview

Read up on the NHS 10 year plan as there's a section on child mental health. Think about a difficult situation you've worked with - there'll be lots of risk in a CAMHS Crisis team so they're likely to ask you about how you've managed a risky situation. Also think about your own resilience and what s...

Re: Online therapy or remote psychology jobs

Remember that clinical psychology isn't just about therapy as well, so if you only want to do therapy, then the breadth of clincial psychology training probably isn't relevant either.

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

You've reminded me of someone in my maths class in my final year of secondary school who kept showing off and was so cocky that he was the cleverest person ever and way smarter than me. He bet me £1 he'd beat me by a grade or more, and kept going on and on about it. Until the point he got a D and I...

Re: UCL clearing house application progress page

The boxes don't mean anything - I know it's hard not to feel anxious and speculate but nothing can be read into it at this stage. Good luck!

Re: Experience/Application Advice

To reiterate all my posts on the subject, the expectations of different courses in terms of access to 'experience' vary hugely and start at none at all. People do not need clinical experience, postgraduate training, published papers, or experience in research to get a place on a DClinPsy. I'd look ...

Re: NHS Lease Cars - While Training

Do they mean permanent? Because you have a lease car for three years (or can buy yourself out of the contract early) so I would think it would be fine?

Re: Doldrums...ideas?

Hmm that's frustrating, particularly as you're already registered. I do know that some companies do telephone assessments for legal cases, screening for mental health conditions for insurance companies, but I'm not sure how long it would take to get set up doing that. There's also court work, capaci...

Re: Opinions on using notes in an interview

Sounds positive and it was very good of the interviewer to give such detailed feedback. Good luck for the next one!

Re: Post training holiday

After watching Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, I'd quite like to go to a Greek Island and just do nothing apart from sleep and eat, and sing ABBA songs.

Re: Opinions on using notes in an interview

Lingua has worded what I would have said better than I ever could. I have predominantly worked in inpatient services, and often other members of the MDT will ask an Assistant Psychologist for their opinion on what a service user might need, or why they might be doing x, y and z. I wouldn't expect th...

Re: What is the view on the Clinical Associate Psychology Masters?

Interesting thread. Does anyone know what happened to the cohort of Associate Psychologists trained in England when New Ways of Working came out? I assume that there were issues when we then became regulated by the HCPC because Associate Psychologist is not a recognised title.

Re: Opinions on using notes in an interview

I think it would depend for me. If this had been requested as a reaonable adjustment, I wouldn't have an issue. However, I think in an interview I'd be assessing more than just someone's ability to research something then read it back off a piece of paper. I'd like to think I was employing someone w...
