Re: Should I apply for the next intake - Part II

I think there is a debate on the whole “close to base” issue as some courses give points for being local to the area, putting applicants who live further away at a disadvantage. With the current funding issues and experience of the types of areas with difficulty employing a rounded psychological wo...

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.
