Re: Postgrad CBT course is being a support worker enough ex?

I agree 100% with Lingua. FOCUS ON THE HERE AND NOW!! Any number of changes could take place in the next few years (in you, in IAPT, in the selection criteria, etc) and advice given now is irrelevant to then! You really are better off forgetting "what next" and focusing on the only thing you can con...

Re: Postgrad CBT course is being a support worker enough ex?

I'm confused! In a post in the Psychology Degree sectin from earlier this month you state you are just starting your degree!! You cannot have obtained a degree in less than a month! So, do you have a degree or not?

Re: Counselling Psychology Application

Hi. Congrats on getting a place! I have an interview later this month. Do you mind me asking examples of questions you were asked in the interview? Thanks Forum guidelines do not permit giving people questions from specific courses as it confers an unfair advantage. There is a big list of questions...

Re: Beginning the journey

At the risk of being accused of dampening enthusiasm, I would strongly recommend that you don't think in terms of plans like this. It is great that you ARE enthusiastic about CP, but what you've outlined above, in my view at least, is far, far too focused on the future. This can be counterproductive...

Re: Disclosing personal trauma to supervisor

If you are confident about your relationship with your supervisor I think it is entirely appropriate to share this information. You are under no obligation to do so, but if there IS a possibility this could affect your practice (not saying it will!)then you need to be able to identify this and explo...

Re: Question about school qualifications certificates

I have never known anyone have to produce school certificates. I am pretty sure your degree certificates are more than enough.

Re: Application “honesty”

I would say forget them and focus on yourself. I do understand your frustration at a person having received that amount of help, but what will it benefit you if you report it? How are you going to prove your suspicions? Will it make any difference toYOUR chances of being accepted if you report it? I...

Re: Publications on application

I'm afraid if you have only submitted you probably can't list them. If they had been accepted subject to a few changes you could list them as "in press", but if you have had no feedback on them yet and don't know when or even if they will be published, you cannot really use them. Whilst I'm not ques...

Re: placing a future role in doctorate application

My main issue with listing a job that the applicant hasn't even started yet is that everything associated with it depends on hypotheticals. Yes, you hope that the job will offer you X, Y and Z, but what if it doesn't? What if the role, in reality, teaches you nothing more than you already know? For ...

Re: placing a future role in doctorate application

To be honest, I don't think it's something you CAN mention on the application form as you won't even have started in the role by the time the form needs submitting nor by the time courses are short-listing. Given this, you will have no idea how the new role will help you develop into a prospective t...

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

Just one thought... 1) It's done. I'm a qualified CP, I'm graduated, I'm now a Dr. Took me 5 long years (not including the years and years spent applying, some of you will remember me from those days) but it's finally done. Well done, Ell. I've followed your progress from your earliest days and am ...

Re: AP Interview Feedback from Employer?

I can't speak for ALL emplyers, but when I have interviewed for APs the protocol has been that we inform ALL candidates of the result on the same day, be that the day of the interviews or the next day. There are exceptions to that, such as if the succesful candidate asks for a day to think about it....

Re: Grade classification for application

It's probably best to contact your old university and see if they can help. Different institutions use different cut offs, so a high 2:1 at one university might be a mid 2:1 at another and, obviously, nobody here will know your actual percentage. Check with the awarding institution.
