Re: Jordan Peterson - why do practitioners not like him?

I don’t think however (and here I am in agreement with Miriam) that getting into an ideological debate is the way forward. There was a recent paper (I think by Reicher et al but I would need to check) on extremism which clearly showed that challenging people with extreme views on the basis of ideol...

Re: Jordan Peterson - why do practitioners not like him?

Correct me if I've misunderstood you buenosaires, but I wonder if what you're saying is that you disagree with JP's content, but you think it is important to understand how he has got such a following (I.e. the process)? If this is the case, then would that change miriam's analogy to whether or not ...

Re: Advice for working with someone with GAD

If her goal is to reduce overthinking (which I assume is a goal she generated), but doesn't see herself as worrying, then I think there might be some value in talking about exactly what she means by those terms. It may be you each have different definitions of those words. Alternatively, she may fee...

Re: Anxiety in interviews

Given that one of the aims of CBT is to equip people with skills that they can use when difficulties crop up, and you are saying you are currently putting into place some of those strategies, I think it sounds like the CBT was more effective than you perhaps thought it was at the time. Therapy might...

Re: Edinburgh 2019 Entry

In that case, delete my post. Clearly having a sense of humour is not worthy of your approval 👍🏻 I appreciate the sharing of questions and information part. Do what you have to do 👍🏻 Sense of humour is well-received here (have a look around and you'll see!), but we have guidelines on the forum that...

Following the usual tradition this is your space to record your progress and successes for 2019! Some invites for selection tests have already gone out, but please be aware there probably won't be much more news until nearer the deadline date so don't panic that you haven't heard anything from most ...

Be assertive and proactive with this, as the only person who loses out is you. Phone the academic reference today, phone clearing house today.

Re: Academic Referee Guidance

I'm pretty sure your application will be significantly hindered without the academic reference, if I'm being honest. However, get on to clearing house ASAP and find out what can be done. Applications will have only just arrived with the course centres, they won't have shortlisted yet, and so you mig...
