Re: How much free time as a final year Bsc undergrad?

I would also like to add a socioeconomic perspective to this. I could not have afforded to go to university (in the major city that I was offered a place in) unless I worked a certain number of hours a week (in a secure job that paid more than a zero hour retail assistant job). These jobs only tend ...

Re: How much free time as a final year Bsc undergrad?

This seems to vary wildly from university to university. For instance, in the final year of my undergrad we had several days a week for "independent study", with very little requirement to be in lectures (and so I had a customer service job for 15 weekday hours, an infrequent RA voluntary role, and ...

Re: Who is Spatch?

Who is Spatch Logan? I've read his book and he comments a lot, he seems really funny and smart but I don't know who he is, I googled him and couldn't find him! Is he the Banksy of the Psychology world or am I being dippy? No worries if he is and wants to stay a secret, I was just curious incase I j...

Re: Future Me

This is a really long throwback/bump - but wanted to say that this website is still active, and I just got the email that I sent myself in 2010! I only knew to post here because past me wrote "I just recommended this website on ClinPsy - wonder if either website will still be going when I get it bac...

Re: Grounded theory and the "no talk" rule

Sounds wonderfully interesting - please do write something. I loved using GT for that exact reason, and it would be great if people added more to the literature around the methodology. And then send it to me ;)

Re: Grounded theory and the "no talk" rule

Ugh, the no talk rule. I used grounded theory for my major research project and remember not being able to find much on this topic either. From what I remember there is a bit about it in this book (which I found really v helpful when I was doing the work): Urquhart, C. (2012). Grounded theory for qu...

Re: Punctuation error on application...

Chiming in with what others have said - I am qualified and I had two spelling mistakes and a punctuation mistake on my application. I was about to write something about how it really shouldn't matter and then I remembered how cross I get when people spell Salomons as "Solomons" :roll: Nonetheless, I...

Re: Junior doctor strike

Hi workingmama - interesting post and thanks for voicing it! I hope you don't mind but I thought I would reply to your points from my position in the hope of learning more from someone with a different standpoint to me. I am for the Junior Doctors striking. 1) 7 day service: My understanding was not...

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

1. How is that that on the 30th of January I had no outstanding admin and by the 17th of Feb I literally have no space for a cup of tea on my desk because of files? 2. Admin lady just looked at me shocked and said "I had NO IDEA you were a doctor". Has refused to let me make tea since. Am not sure h...

Re: fear of talking about obsessions

Bit of an ACT perspective here - we might dicuss the effect of the obsessions (i.e. whether they are helpful/unhelpful) without needing the content by looking at whether they guide her behaviour towards actions which are in line with her values. Then might do some work on defusing from those thought...

Re: Solomons/Surrey test

Hey,

It's been a few years since I did this test, however my understanding is the same as firegals - that the two courses look for slightly different things and so therefore it is possible for you to get an interview at one and not at another through the test (this definitely happened to my cohort).

Re: Course epistemologies

Salomons definitely falls more towards the social constructionist end of the spectrum (although I suspect that it isn't as black and white as being one or the other!) Nonetheless, my time there was very much rooted in how we construct realities, especially through language.

Attachment based interventions

Hello all, I'm hoping to draw on your vast collective knowledge! The service that I am currently placed in is looking at providing attachment based interventions (some that they have looked at so far are the Parent - Child game, mellow parenting and developmental dyadic psychotherapy). For context, ...
