Warm up exercises for a group

You can do loads of different things, and there are even books full of just that kind of thing (can't think of the name of the one I know, but it has a red cover). Some starter ideas off the top of my head include: Throw a cuddly toy around naming yourself and the person you got it from and are thro...

Why are people motivated to be CPs? Implications

Is it to do with attachment anxiety? Although some people say insecure attachment leads people to "helping professions" I think it's simplistic to divide adult attachment merely into secure and insecure. I think often it’s about how processed the strengths and short-comings in your attachment relat...

Do I want to be a CP? What else could I do other than AP?

I think that somewhere in the definition of "Assistant Psychologist" is that it is a temporary post, intended for people on their path to clinical training. However that is not always rigidly enforced, also there are a number of similar posts for which that is not the case (such as if you do the new...

Informal visits to departments prior to interview

It is often helpful to visit a service before your interview if you can, so why not ring the department and ask if this is possible if it isn't already part of the selection process. Prepare for your offer to be declined if you do ask, though don't let that discourage you from asking, as the logisti...

Current issues in NHS clinical psychology

I guess there are a lot of ethical/theoretical issues buzzing at the moment. Like whether psychologists should be able to train to prescribe medicines or not, or whether we should have statutory registration or not, or whether CPD should be compulsory and monitored, or whether real clinical cases re...

New Ways of Working - impact on us?

Following on from Spatch's useful wiki on NWWAP ... There was an interesting repost to NWWAP in this month's Service and Practise Update (the newletter of the Child Faculty) called "New ways of shooting ourselves in the foot" by Tim Prescott of the Teeside course. The gist being that this is a new l...

Competition: Design the www.ClinPsy.org.uk logo

We need a logo to go on the front page of the website, and the top left of each page in the forum (to the left of the title, which will move right a bit to fill up the space better), so if any of you have an art package, why not knock us up one? The best one will be used on the website and will also...

Suggest other Wiki topics here

Please post on this thread if you have a suggestion of a topic for the wiki.

Ideally, try to make a top post for the new topic as well as a title, even if it only gives a very brief overview of what you would like the new topic to cover, as that can spark off other people's ideas.
