Re: Looking for resources on functional neurological illness

It might not be quite what you're after, but Jon Stone's website itself is pretty good if you haven't seen it already.

Re: Why is it an exciting time to (possibly) do my training?

You raise a lot of important issues in mental health services at the moment. However, I'd want to hear about your thoughts on the opportunities for clinical psychology in the context of those problems. What can be done differently? What might the role of a CP be? Think about the wider policy context...

Re: does research have to lead to publication

It's pretty standard for papers to be knocked back by the first journal you apply for. It's annoying but it's just the way it goes The editors for high profile journals can't accept every paper that crosses their desk. What most researchers tend to do is start with a high impact journal and then wor...

Re: Help...NHS first or University first?

Most trainee PWP jobs are advertised on NHS Jobs. Usually the NHS trust will interview and select candidates, then you'll do the PGCert (and register with a uni etc) once you're in post. That's the way it used to be anyway...I've been out of IAPT for a few years now so if anyone knows differently pl...

Re: Hertfordshire fringe allowance

All fringes have to be less than two inches long and must be kept out of one's eyes at all times.

And by that I mean I've no idea, sorry

Re: clinician's avoidance of bringing up sensitive topics

Have you looked at the keywords or MeSH terms used by the papers you have?

The search function on this page is useful too in coming up with additional terms - http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/MBrowser.html

Re: Books on Personality Disorders

Have you looked at Fonagy (2004). Psychotherapy for Borderline Personality Disorder: Mentalization Based Treatment - there's a good chapter in there about application of different models (e.g. CAT, DBT, CBT, psychodynamic), might be a nice starting point?

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2015

Easier said than done, but my advice would be to avoid checking the clearing house website entirely and wait until you hear from the course centre. There's no consistency in what any of it means and it will just raise anxiety...avoid the temptation!

At Lancaster, it's generally three days placement, one day teaching and one day study. Occasionally there are teaching blocks - the induction teaching lasts about a month before you start placement. The four core placements are six months each. Third year begins with a three month study block for th...

Re: Finding a private therapist who is a CP

You would negotiate cost with individual CPs - there's no set rate.
