Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

(I currently work in Canada, so apologies if this post doesn't make sense within an NHS context!) I work in CAMHS, with kids with significant behavioural difficulties. I didn't overly want the job, but it was a good career move. When I interviewed, I asked about kids with aggression or violence issu...

Re: Mileage Tax Relief - Temporary Workplace Relief for Trai

:shock: That is confusing! I have never claimed mileage before, so I'm already clear as mud about how it works. So basically, I can't claim any mileage from UEA in the first place, so I can't get any tax relief on the journey? Is it just UEA that don't pay mileage, or most courses? Given it's spread...

Re: Mileage Tax Relief - Temporary Workplace Relief for Trai

I'm so glad I saw this thread! I'm likely to have a significant commute between home and placement, so this will be great!

Re: What experience did you have when you got on training?

It feels very surreal to post here! My experience is very unusual compared to most, so I thought it might be handy for those who can't/aren't taking a typical path. 2005-2009: BSc Neuroscience (2:1) 2009-2011 Applied Psychology Conversion Course (1:1) During my psych degree, I worked occasionally as...

Re: How many times did you apply?

Twice for me. Once during my MSc, for 2013 entry. Not a sausage out of that, and the sense of rejection left me reluctant to even think about applying again.

This year, I got 3 outright Nos. UEA interviewed me, but put me on the reserve list. After a painful 2 months, I got an offer :).

Re: UEA 2016

Yep, my reasons are largely related to my husband and his career! We were really hoping for Cambridge, as that would have been best for both of us.

Re: UEA 2016

Hi all, I have been offered a place from the reserve list today :). Unfortunately, Peterborough is the base I've been assigned, and it's just not viable for me for a number of reasons. I will be emailing Kate to ask if there's anywhere else I could be assigned, but I'm just wondering if anyone here ...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

Talk to Kate, persephone - see if there's any chance that any one wants to swap, or if there's potential with any other places yet to confirm. There could be hope! Congratulations on getting the place regardless and I really hope something can work out :) Thanks, AB :). I feel like I'm always peste...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

First of all, congratulations! I think you're probably not alone in those conflicting feelings, pip. I'm on the reserve list for a course since March, and in the mean time, I have been having a long hard think about career options. I've realised there's a totally different area that I'm also quite ...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

I was holding out hope for Southampton as it's commutable and would have been much more practical. As it happens it wasn't to be. Today I am actually finding it all very difficult as all I can think about is having to move away for training and no longer being able to live with my boyfriend as he h...

Re: Reserve list for places 2016

I know 1 person, and possibly two, on UEA's reserve list were offered places yesterday.

Neither of those people were me, so I'll continue to wait.

I did email them, but I won't hold me breath for a reply.

Absolutely, lingua, I will do. I'll tip away at a very basic literature search over the next while :)

Re: Personality/behaviour & major life events - researchers?

Thanks Gilly! That's a good place to start. I'm more thinking about births, marriages and divorces as opposed to unpredictable traumas but it's great to have any kin of starting point :)

Personality/behaviour & major life events - researchers?

I'm having trouble putting this into words, but is there anyone that you know of who is researching an area like personality changes in relation to major life events? Or behaviour changes around major life events? I'm struggling to even find terms to search for! It's likely to be in the social psych...
