Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

The Speakmans! I didn't want to start a new thread as I think I remember previous discussion but I hadn't actually watched them until now, pinned down by two sleeping ill children and unable to reach the remote. They have just been highlighting how much more effective their therapy (with no evidence...

Re: On call crisis work as clinical Psychologist

Hi, I agree that arguing for a special get out would be corosive and that is certainly not what im saying, i think increasing demands for out of hours work that is in addition to any workers day role is a bad thing, and just strikes me as trying to get more for less out of people in the short term b...

On call crisis work as clinical Psychologist

Hi, The recent discussions everywhere around an expectation of a 24 hour NHS service have prompted me to try to gain some views on the role of clinical psycholgists in this context. I work in a CAMHS service, all band six or above clinicians (so all clin psychs - I am qualified) are expected to be o...

Re: Downs & Black quality assessment tool - query

Hi,

I had the same trouble with this item when I used it for my thesis lit review, and no-one seemed to know what to do! However in the end I scored each paper based on the smallest intervention group. This seems to be how others interpret it and I managed to pass thesis doing it this way!

Re: MHFA training

I have been on this course, I thinkits a good course but its very basic. I got the idea from it that it was aimed at companies and people with little or no experience in mental health or any background in understanding mental health issues. It covered things like prevelance and basic ideas on what d...

Re: Relevant Experience Reference must be from current emplo

I applied to Trent last year and used a previous manager as I was no longer being supervised by a psychologist, similar to above I got a call that gave me a couple of days to get a reference from my current manager and send it to them, they said at the time it was to comply with the regulations of t...

Re: Overrated?

In response to the OP, I think there may be some case for selective reading of replies!I am ashamed to admit I am a long time lurker but rarely respond but here goes!

Oh- forgot to mention it but pretty important, BIRT is a psychology lead service which is pretty different to other places, so psychology is valued highly and psychologists tend to be clinical leads. Also BIRT have their own neurotest, may be worth brownie points, called BMIPB, pretty similar to AMI...

I think it could be really helpful to some people, I think I would just think carefully about who I recomended it to, there are worse things people can rea...

I think the same as Bantam, an essential requirment of having worked for 12 months as an AP with children and families would eliminate a lot of possible applicants.
