Re: Apply for a CAAP course or chance my luck with DClinPsy or NES Stage 2?

Hey 😊 I completed the Adult CAAP course in 2019 and will be starting the DClin at Edinburgh Uni come September this year. I'm more than happy to reflect some of my thoughts on what’s been discussed: - So, if you were to take the CAAP route (either Child/Adult) then you’re right in saying that you wo...

Re: Msc in psychological therapies in Primary care

Hi Jamie, Thanks for letting us know, hopefully it is sooner rather than later! It was a very different style interview to what I have been used to so definitely easy to criticise! Have you enjoy training so far? Yes it’s been a really interesting (and very quick) year with both what you learn on c...

Re: MSc Psychological Therapy in Primary Care 2019

Yeah I agree with the questions being specific - although I managed to ramble on too long cause at the end they said they wouldn’t let me ask them questions as they were pushed for time 🙈whoops hahah.

Hopefully it’s early next week the waiting is torturing me 😂

Re: MSc Psychological Therapy in Primary Care 2019

If I'm honest I'm not entirely sure... Although my impressions are is that Karen (course admin) is doing the emails one by one to each person as opposed to a standard send-out so may well possibly be till tomorrow. I suppose the only way to find out is pop an email over to her tomorrow morning, may ...
