Re: Tactile clients in CAMHS

I realise this post was originally asking about tactile CAMHS clients, but I was struck by how the same issues can occur at both ends of the age spectrum! As someone who spent the bulk of their clinical life working with Older Adults this was an issue that often came up. I think Miriam's points abou...

Re: Gaining the 2nd AP post...

Also if you've already worked as an AP with a certain group, for example in LD, is it possible to go to something else like AP older adults without any (or with very little) experience with that population? The short answer is "Yes"! The key thing is to think in terms of transferable skills. Reflec...

Re: 2013 App disaster

You poor thing! What a horrible day! Sending you virtual hugs. I would echo what Blue Cat has said about contacting the uni and seeing if there is anyway you can take the test at the next sitting. You have absolutely nothing to lose by asking. The worst they can say is "No" and, even if they do, you...

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

1. What a FABULOUS day! Lovely weather, long walk with hubby, daughter and dogs, with a picnic thrown in. I could do it again and again and again :D :P !! 2. Now rounding the day off with a good glass of Chilean Merlot. Does it get any better than this? 3. Hope the weather holds this week so we can ...

Re: Edinburgh further questions

What makes you think that just because someone produces a bullet point that its not well thought out or includes use of good English grammar? bullet points can still be well thought out, structured and informative and can be used to convey facts in a clear and concise manner. I myself have included...

Re: Edinburgh further questions

p.s. as you only have a limited word count, may be you could consider doing bullet points, saves you space and the reader may appreciate it if there having to read through quite a few applications. NO, NO, NO!!!! Whilst I don't pretend to talk for everybody, the majority of people I know who read a...

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

1. We caught the little cat that appeared in the garden and got her to the vet. She was very easy to catch and is very friendly. It turns out she doesn't have a microchip and, for now, has settled very nicely into the spare bedroom! We've put up 'Found' posters so we'll see if anyone claims her, but...

Re: Forgetting the question

As someone who has interviewed MANY people over the years, I have seen what you're describing happen many times. Interviews are highly stressful, highly artificial situations, so it's hardly surprising that you can sometimes find yourself going blank or 'tuning out'! So don't worry that you might be...

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

1. Not sure if the little cat that has been sitting at the back door for the past 3 days has a home or is a stray. It doesn't have a collar and looks bedraggled and has wolfed down the food we've left for it. Might try to get it to the vet to see if it's microchipped. If not will take it in and put ...
