Re: Reserve Place for a Course

I would love any news on the Bath reserve list (I am third reserve, but know that only two reserves got places last year...)

Re: Do you or would you use the title Dr? (fun) debate

She came into the room, saw me sitting there, got down on her knees beside me and said in That Voice (any disabled person will know what i mean - very slow, and shrill enough to shatter glass), "Do you know why I'm here, Lingua?" To which I replied, "Afraid I don't. I don't normally get into these ...

Re: empathic vs empathetic

I'm loving this thread! Geishawife and Oldlady in particular made great points :) But I have to admit I'm partly loving it for all the wrong reasons. Look at the amount of wondrous errors made by the very grammar nerds posting their offence at perceived errors! We've got emphatic (an entirely diffe...

Re: empathic vs empathetic

I just like to do things properly, but aware that I am in minority. I also say 'I text Chris' rather than 'I texted Chris' because it just sounds so awful and wrong. Empathic, too, sounds awful and wrong (to me). The examples you give are just further examples of bad grammar. What about telepathic ...

Re: Application form - release to centre

Spatch said, "Realise it's an anxious time for applicants, but the clearinghouse isn't some huge, luxuriously funded organisation, but is a couple of ladies in an office who have to do a frightening amount of complex admin and logistics in a horribly narrow window." Just for the record, in my experi...

Re: Anyone with young children?

I was not a trainee (I hope to be one day), but I was a single mother and a newly qualified solicitor in the City and was doing mind blowingly dull exams* with my first so reckon I can weigh in. If you need to work in the evening set a time limit. Say, "I am going to do 1.5 hours and after that I am...

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

1. Miriam, I really hope you feel better now! You always seem like a human whirlwind -the person that makes me think - ooh maybe I can do a bit more, work a bit harder, write that book review/volunteer for that extra post (I have three kids and am mid career change from law to psychology - I think w...

clinical intuition/emotional reasoning

Hi I am not quite sure whether this is quite the right thread for this question, but since I have been thinking a lot about it within therapeutic work, it may be. I would be really interested in any views about the place of clinical intuition within psychology and especially to a counter (possibly C...

Re: Bath Clinical Doctorate- Points for Academic Achievement

Benjamin said It has been said before but probably bears repeating. There are two issues with approaching the issue this way; firstly the average scores for the academic section vary each year, so old scores have little bearing on what may be needed this year. Secondly there are people on the Bath c...
