I don't think we had this when I trained at Trent, not to my knowledge anyway!

Quick survey for a client's question

Hello all, I'd be really grateful if you could please spare a few minutes to answer this 4 question survey about talking to someone who has had cancer. The responses are anonymous, and will be used as part of mine and a client's work together. The client has given full consent and permission for me ...

Re: Newly qualified with HCPC - First Job Search

I wasn't aware there was an guidance about the amount of supervision you should get as a qualified CP- I'd be really interested if anyone has a link to any? I'm a band 7 and get 1.5 hours fortnightly, and we're about to reduce it to 3-weekly as I complete my preceptorship. I'm also fortunate in tha...

I just wanted to flag up that the amount of supervision can vary between different services/Trusts. For example, in my previous job I had 1 hour o...

Re: Help please: Reasons to pursue a career in clin psychol

Also, with my tongue firmly in my cheek, it's like medicine without the [physically] sick people :lol: . Unless you're a CP in physical health services, where working with people clutching sick bowls and with open wounds can be all in a day's work! And I'm definitely a CP because I'm nosey, but I u...

Hello,

I am on the East Midlands Division of Clinical Psychology committee and run our Twitter account (Twitter.com/EastMidsDCP). I often post links to events in our region so that might be worth a look :)

Re: Working as a CP in USA?

This thread may be useful, although it is about training in the US and I'm unsure whether you are already qualified as a CP in the UK or not: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13211&p=177194#p177194

Re: Viva tips

I totally agree BlueCat.

Is it usual to have some input into who your external examiner is for DClin vivas? We didn't on our course but it sounds like this might vary from course to course?

Re: Viva tips

My main tips mostly echo what others have already said: - have a mock viva - write notes over your copy as reminders - use post it notes to mark important sections - have a sheet of corrections (e.g. I had rerun some stats so could show these in my viva) - look at the main relevant theories as a ref...
