Is IAPT failing people with medical problems?

Disclaimer: I know very little about IAPT - this is just something which occurred to me the other day so am seeking clarification and other people's views! I was at a talk the other day relating to the efficacy of psychological interventions for increasing the well-being of people with physical heal...

& maybe something at the beginning on evidence-based practice and where single case studies fit in with that?

Not sure whether new ways of working etc could be covered in one chapter - especially given (as Russ pointed out) the context of IAPT.

I know what you mean - I came away very enthusiastic and excited about the idea but the more I thought about it the more problems seemed to come up. Specifically, if I consider it the equivalent of starting up a new service (which I think I would have to do in order to make it meaningful and not end...

Its a nice idea - but I do wonder whether there is actually a gap in the market for such a book. In response to Miriam, the 'What is Clinical Psychology' book by Hall and Llewelyn does seem to be what is being described. It has an intro chapter on 'What is clinical psychology?' then chapters describ...

Actually this article provoked quite mixed reactions in me. Yes it is quite inflammatory and derogatory in terms of ‘psycho-babes’, but at the same time he is, as someone else said, entitled to his opinion. He's a service user (therefore this article could be considered service user feedback). More ...

I don't know if this would be relevent to your interview, and may completely over-complicate things, but I think its interesting that the DSM-V is considering dropping the diagnosis of Asperger's completely, and just considering 'autism' as a continuum of autistic spectrum consitions (I think, if I'...

Hey Steve, I think it was easy for me. I knew I wanted to work in CAMHS, so opted for a specialist CAMHS placement. I suppose I also considered what compentencies I was a bit lacking in. Most of my placements were frustratingly CBT oriented, so when thinking about my specialist placement I went for ...

Thanks Miriam - I didn't think he was disagreeing with 'my' ( :D ) suggestions, just that he was picking me up on how I'd gone about making some of them. I was just reflecting on why I might've done that. Its not an issue.

Good luck Holly.

and also (and slightly more seriously) - I think it can be a bit hard for people new to this site to feel like they have anything worthwhile to contribute, when there is such an overt difference in levels of knowledge and experience :oops:
