Re: Questions about PWP

I completed a year working essentially as an honorary assistant psychologist (but can't call it that because I didn't have as much direct clinical contact) in an inpatient CAMHS unit. Just to be a pedant, but an AP post is not defined by the level of clinical contact. It is defined by the job title...

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

I suspect that figure will vary significantly based on the specific programme. Our rate would be under 1% for example. You think less than 1% of applicants don't have GBC? Or don't have right to live and work in the UK? Or don't have completed qualifications to the standard required? I'd be very su...

Re: HI interview invitation but do I have the experience?

If they have offered you an interview the obviously think it possible you can do the job, but be honest about the limits to your current knowledge and express willingness to learn rather than trying to cram and then blag as if your experience is more extensive than it is.

Ask the person that knows you, presuming you think they will write positive things about you.

Re: Online survey for research on sexual harassment (age 18+)

Soir9 (I think) has a missing category for 7-19 sexual partners. This is quite a long survey, and the main qualitative questions are ambiguous - as a "positive" response presumably means something that has an element that would be rewarding for you, rather than that the other party would respond pos...

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

Its the odds, the ratio between applicants and places. So the worst odds are from the 500 applicants for the 10 places at Coventry and Warwick (50:1). The best odds are from Salomans where they have almost the same number of applicants for 34 places (15:1). Ah, cool, thanks. On my phone it looked l...

Re: Publications and Dissemination section

I put in all service development projects I've done, such as inputting into care pathways, service evaluations or audits. Most services or trusts have newsletters or something similar and I wrote some really small pieces in there and classed that as a publication, they can also be referenced even t...

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

I'm not sure there are any clear patterns, but if I were to try to draw out some trends the courses that have the lowest ratios of applicants to places seem to be those that are perceived as geographically far flung (East Anglia, Glasgow, Edinburgh, South Wales), the larger courses that are perceive...

Re: Should I apply for a clinical doctorate, or gain more experience?

It didn't upset me. It was just slightly infuriating because you have uncritically absorbed rumours we have worked for 12 years to disband, and didn't look at any of the existing forum content (including numerous pinned threads and wiki entries) that deal with these topics, despite coming on here to...

Re: Should I apply for a clinical doctorate, or gain more experience?

This is an infuriating post for a number of reasons: 1) You clearly haven't read any of the many posts on the forum that deal with these ridiculous rumours about "people with PhDs that have been turned down, as well as people who have been gaining experience for up to ten years, who have been turned...

Re: Edinburgh Interview Feedback

Is one legally entitled to feedback from interviews? Yeah, this. If notes are made about your performance and stored you are legally allowed to request it is my understanding although if I am incorrect I am happy to withdraw that :) That's a data protection right, but isn't the same thing as feedba...

Re: Division of clinical psychology booklet/pdf request

So, your plan was to ask who is prepared to breach copyright and risk their professional standing (and up to 6 months imprisonment and a fine of up to £50k if convicted), and our ability to run this forum, in order to save you less than a fiver and deprive our professional body of it's rightful inco...
