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

My fellow Assistant colleague is awfully confident and taunts me by saying he'll be successful his first time applying as he's so lucky and walked into his Assistant job with no experience - when it's unlikely I will be successful this time (second attempt). It sounds like the kind of hubris that c...

Re: Ieso Digital Health - Online CBT

Re: Ieso Digital Health - Online CBT

I don't have personal experience but I've referred a lot of clients to them, and my best friend was a patient through IESO. I've only heard good things.

Re: Psychology Degree Advice

My advice would be to read primary sources extensively outside of the course materials when working on assignments, synthesise information and think critically about everything. Also, try to use contemporary research in assignments as much as possible. Mention classic studies if necessary, but go i...

Re: A question for the cat owners of ClinPsy

I think the most important thing is that the introduction is gradual and you are able to be around for the first few days or so to help them feel at ease and get acquainted.

Re: Academic Referee Guidance

Have you been able to contact the initial referee to give them a polite nudge, and were they aware of the deadline when you first asked them? I haven't had this problem myself when I applied last year as my academic referee was very on the ball. But I'm sure it's obvious to the Clearing House that y...
