Re: WAIS Processing Speed

Hello again. You asked a WAIS question recently and then did not respond to the suggestions people posted. That gave me the sense you may want to be given an answer rather than participate in a discussion. I find that most unsatisfying to join in. It also makes me wonder if this subverts rather than...

Re: Managing frustrations...

Hi Jo, I guess the important consequences you may be referring to is the literature that showed that the clients whom their therapists felt hostile towards tended to have poor clinical outcomes? If you don't mind I'll take a slightly different tack to your request of management strategies. I think n...

Re: Want to help, but not sure how - Possible Eating Disorde

I have also wondered if there is anything that could be done. I lived near my child placement base and ran in the area. I saw several young people who attended the service running regularly, one with a parent. I saw a woman who was not a client but who I saw running so regularly, and who was so low ...

Re: How to be useful in MDT's

I loathe a bad meeting. The wasted staff time, financial cost and especially the lost opportunity to use the assembled knowledge and expertise well to improve the service provided to people. I therefore connected most to your comments about the MDT meetings, rather than the more general question of ...

Re: Difficult dynamics in the workplace

When a colleague comes to complain about the other psychologist(s) what are they asking for and expecting of you? Do they expect you to do something about it on their behalf or is that coming from your sense of responsibility? Could you instead support your lower banded colleagues and help them to m...

Re: Senior PWP post

In any sense you are able and willing to comment on the experience. What is it like to be supervised by a senior PWP rather than another practitioner, like a CBT therapist or clinical psychologist, especially for those who've had experience of both. What's it like to supervise others at a (presumabl...

Re: How much can you disclose to family members?

The service already confirmed he's a patient by getting 'his therapist' to speak to the spouse. The therapist should speak to their supervisor, then the client. The service should consider how the incident occurred. The team manager or a senior clinician ought to deal with this, not his clinician. T...

Re: Applying for DClinPsy during final year undergrad

You might very well not get on but I believe there is nonetheless much to gain from applying in terms of learning the process and learning about yourself, e.g. gaps in knowledge and skills. In general I am dismayed to hear assistants tell me they're not applying because they feel they don't stand a ...

Re: Starting a new job but potential for better offers?

Your current manager is free to offer you more money and a more interesting work role in order to retain you, and to set out a development plan that would help you achieve your goals. If not it would be a very unusual person who chose to stay for less pay in a less fulfilling role! This situation is...
