Re: HI CBT therapists needed!

You need to follow our pinned rules to recruit via this forum, including naming your supervisor and stating that your ethical approval includes online recruitment. If you do not add this information I will remove your contact details from the OP.

Re: Opinions - what else should I be doing?

If everyone was entitled to help then there would be ten times the amount of referrals to resources. The NHS has only enough funding for the most severe cases that fit their core remit. Referrals have risen substantially and funding has been cut in real terms during the last decade of austerity. CAM...

Re: Psychologists wanted: five-minute online survey on Mental Capacity

You might find it helpful to contact Dr Judith Freedman, as she was always the hub of a network of expert witnesses, and might be able to pass on our link to her mailing list. I'll email you her details.

Re: Opinions - what else should I be doing?

Try to get something published. It really stands out positively on application forms to have a peer-reviewed journal publication. And apply for paid NHS roles. Don't think you need to wait and volunteer one day a week. There will be services where your ASD experience is valued. It might also be help...

Re: Opinion on thieves and other low-grade crime committers

I also wonder whose reaction to someone they knew having been a victim of crime would be to criticise their language when reacting to it. It seems like that speaks of self-righteousness, rather than the compassion for all they are expecting you to express.

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

When I challenge someone on their ideology, behavior, sexism, whatever, I'm not challenging them with the belief that I'll alter their views, I'm doing it for the bystanders, for the lurkers, for the quiet folks watching from the audience. The debate is the forum not to change the opposition's mind...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1) Had a nice weekend away in the camper van, at a little festival with my brother and his family. 2) Now a demi-nonagenarian, as my brother so kindly put it. 3) Been a bit challenging on the health front the last couple of weeks. Niece got quite a serious concussion. Daughter got a minor eye injury...

Re: Summer psychology work (and has anyone come across "NeuroSupport Services"?)

"Self-employed" work for a single employer has a lot of quite interesting connotations. First it could be considered an attempt to circumvent having to pay NI, pension and payroll costs, and is potentially risky with the way IR35 is being interpreted. Second, it could be an attempt to save money usi...

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

I actually quite like Jordan. To me, he seems like quite a decent chap, trying to do the right thing, and that is quite admirable. He certainly seems more honorable than some Clinical Psychologists I have worked with in the past, and continue to meet to this day. I certainly don't agree with everyt...

Re: Opinion on thieves and other low-grade crime committers

Good reflections PinkFreud19. I believe in what Dan Hughes calls parenting with two hands - that empathy also has to come with boundaries and consequences. So, there can be a reason that a person steals that might mitigate what they have done (eg stealing food if hungry) but there isn't automaticall...

Re: Is it worth continuing feeling disheartened

Likewise to both the above posts.

And do find a job you are enjoying that you can do whilst doing the other stuff. Enjoying the journey is way more important than how fast you reach the destination.

Re: 2019 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Don't forget to post on our polls (pinned to the top of the doctoral applications section) about how long it took before you got onto training, and to give us a brief summary of your experiences so that other people can see the standards expected of trainees.

Re: Fixed term contract and pregnancy

Your contract will be extended to cover maternity leave. I think that bit you've cited means they can't legally let your contract end within the last 11 weeks of pregnancy or the first 6 weeks of maternity leave. If you've had 2 years continuous service then I'm pretty sure you will get standard NHS...

I no longer feel that Pride as a movement is supportive of lesbian women, and this recognition/belief coupled with a discussion with some friends last year made me recognise that lesbian women have always been the poor relation in terms of representation, funded research and supported activism by t...
