Re: Clinical Psychology Doctorate Interview Advice

Nads, hope you got the articles and got a place!

Lizard Queen, well done! How did you get on? I intervieed there, but declined the place. Great victoria sponge at interview though!

My pleasure reishi, hope you got on okay :)

Laura, glad you found the post useful. Don't worry, most people fret at various points in the process, I know I did! As for theory linking to practice. Behavioural theories often apply e.g. habituation for clients with anxiety. Another example would be if you assessed a client and relationship with parents in the early years seemed problematic - think attachment theory. Please do ask if you have further questions. Hope you got on okay

Calliope - I agree. I wore my best suit, sharp shirt and tie, polished shoes, etc. In my opinion it's important to make an effort. I still dress this way for interviews now. Hope you got on okay at interviews :)

Glad people are finding the advice post useful, it is a tough process! All the best everyone :)

I just read this, thank you so much, this was so helpful and it really help reassure me for when I finally feel ready to apply. I feel like everyone gets so fixated on experience and academics that they won't have a chance unless they do everything, at least that's how I felt for a long time.
