Re: Applying as an undergraduate

Good luck. I always feel it's worth a punt even if just to refine form technique/interview prep etc.

Re: Applying as an undergraduate

I applied in the December without my final degree classification (OU results are received later in Jan), forwarded on my results when they arrived, and interviewed successfully in Feb for a place on my first application. That makes it sound as if it's very do-able, but I had nearly nine full time ye...

Re: Pregnant, non-patient contact & bored!

Could you offer to work with someone on a clinical audit? This would support the service, upskill you, and potentially give you increased access to to CP?

Re: Part-time training

Hello, Sorry to hear that it's been tough. Occupational Health should be a good support to you right now, and will be able to advise you of the adjustments that are reasonable for you to request. Some of this, rightly or wrongly, may depend on whether your LTC counts as a 'disability' in the formal ...

Re: Can I be a clin psy if I hate behaviour analysis & CBT?

I'd try, in so far as is possible, to separate out what worked for you and what your experience of an intervention was with a specific therapist, with what the evidence base is for an approach in general based on data from multiple clinicians. I've had therapy that was ineffective and therapy that w...

Hi Miriam. I'd be interested to know which comments specifically that you found transphobic of the JK Rowling piece (unless you were meaning other things written, such as social media 'tweets' etc?).

Re: Newsnight report on GIDS

I keep a keen eye out for further data on the neuropsychological implications of puberty blockers when not used to delay a precocious puberty (which is what we use them for in my service), given that disruption to any typical neurodevelopmental process will likely have unforeseen and wide ranging ef...

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

I just realised that quoted post was from December, years ago! D'oh. Rant of the day: people that don't read the thread properly! Sorry!

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

Anxious demanding parent, you should be proud that your child is doing so well academically, given how very unwell they've been. So be proud, and stop bombarding me with aggressive emails criticising how I do things and trying to get me to push the child harder. I know you are anxious, but you need...

Posting about your personal life

I was thinking this when I read Geishawife's response - about the difference with which we might read and understand the OP depending on whether a person 'presented' in a clinical setting with this as their main difficulty, or whether this was a peer at work chewing the fat over lunch, or whether th...

Re: Research Assistant Interview

I'm just about to advertise for a (six month) RA, and then for another one (two years) in about December, then another shortly after that (also 2 year post) (three posts), so I'm very much thinking about RA interview questions now - one is definitely going to be to find out whether the applicant has...

Posting about your personal life

In fairness this is the 'Misc: Off topic' thread, but I would second that this isn't generally what this thread is used for. If you are looking for some general sympathy and top tips rather than therapy, might I suggest the 'Relationships' board of Mumsnet. There are many posts like your own on ther...

Re: Research Assistant Interview

I'd want to know what (if any) research training you have had, including thinking about what you got from your undergrad re research methodology. I'd ask about your experience as an RA, including seeing if you can find examples of non RA posts in which you have been involved in any research (clinica...

Shame it was adult only (although I can see why you'd want to narrow the focus).

Re: Where am I going wrong?

*Sorvio* Whilst assessments used are not IQ tests, you suggest that if they were this could invalidate years of hard work and prior success as if IQ and academic success are in no way related. A high level of academic attainment ('prior success' in this context) is superbly unlikely in the context o...
