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

1. Re-asserting a social life and re-balancing life after a hectic few months at work. 2. Tangling again with the world of research and time to re-visit those demons from training! 3. Wondering if the NHS will ever have the capacity for my 'urgent' but 'non-emergency' over-due treatment. 4. I adore ...

Re: Trainee PWP vs. Assistant psych

To echo what Maven has written, I remember training as a PWP with people who had already been APs and then went on to CP training. A PWP post is relevant for any CP training but particularly those courses with a CBT focus e.g. Bath. However, the AP post may be the better option for the reasons Maven...

Re: Should I enjoy all aspects of clinical psychology?

The great thing is there are so many other routes out there that don't involve doing therapy. There is neuro clinical psychology but you'll do an awful lot of therapy on the way. There is Occupational Therapy in an assessment or brain injury unit or graduate medicine or you can go down the research ...

Re: Publication on your application form

Something is better than nothing so out it down. It shows you are active in disseminating. Often qualified CPs will publish in professional publications, reflective pieces etc. and the number who publish in peer-reviewed journals is still small.

Re: Psychology Graduate Internship Scheme

I don't know this scheme but wanted to comment - but can't get the link to work! How much time are they asking you to commit to? What supervision and support do you get, what work will you be doing?

Re: Wellbeing Access Worker - 2 questions

Only you can decide which job is right for you so do use the interview to find out more. Can you ring to ask for a visit before the interview? For a promotional job you want to think about where and how you would target, engaging hard to reach groups, liaising with other services and organisations, ...

Re: Need motivation to continue job applications

Firstly, think about whether you're pitching at the right level of job e.g. are you going for AP jobs when you need to get a first step in the door job? Can you get some temporary support worker shifts through a temp agency to get you started. NHS jobs get many, many applications. Can you think a bi...

Re: Did you choose Clinical or Counselling Psychology? Why?

Honestly, I didn't want to get into tonnes of debt, had a mortgage and bills to pay and couldn't contemplate unpaid work. In your hypothetical situation and with the benefit of hindsight I'd probably choose Counselling Psychology and secure a very good research supervisor to ensure I beefed up that ...
