Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

You would. And you'd get promoted faster and earn more in your career. Apart from the socioeconomic elements, which are equally if not more prevalent in women, you faced no challenge except for defying your own internalised gender expectations that feelings are feminine. Every aspect of selection a...

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

Well, I'm going to intervene because this is my forum, and it doesn't exist so that people can perpetuate prejudice and ignorance.... you need to go and educate yourself, because if you post this drivel here again and sideline what was a thoughtful debate I'm going to take action as a moderator to ...

Great, but given the question I posed was a hypothetical, it's not really relevant. I've not confirmed your assumption that I'm white and male, for example, because I don't think that's relevant either.

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

I appreciate you've said you'e not going to reply again, and of course that is your right. However, I'll reply to this message as if we were continuing the discussion, because I think it's important not to allow your radical views on gender to go unchallenged. I think it's rather telling that you're...

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

I'd like to beg you to please, especially clinically, when a person from a group that you're not a part of tells you their experience of the world (in a way that you'll likely never experience - e.g. different race, gender, socioeconomic group)... And that is a perspective that comes from a place o...

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

Men, specifically white, cisgendered straight men are the world's least disadvantaged group of people in the context of systemic oppression. This doesn't mean that this group of people does not experience adversities, but rather than these are not as a result of their social identities. This goes b...

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

But, to my reading, what Lakeland is clearly saying here is that if the (small number) of men who enter into the profession are more often in positions of power (8C/8D) than female clinical psychologists... then men are not suffering the effects of discrimination in this profession. Their gender is...

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

No, because men are not disadvantaged as a group Would you mind elaborating on this slightly? I assume you're referring to average earnings, but why is that the relevant metric to use for advantage/disadvantage? If we use other metrics with more of a direct link to mental health (e.g. completed sui...

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

The group which is most significantly underrepresented, relative to their proportion in the UK population as a whole, is men. In the engineering profession, which has a similar gender imbalance in the opposite direction, they are trying to tackle this by offering female-only scholarships (equivalent...

Re: Are there any part-time voluntary roles that count as sufficient prior experience to the doctorate?

Just reading through this thread I am wondering if Maven was referring to your current role in terms of transferable skills as you said you are in a research role Mr0860? Potentially, yes. During my time in the research role (which is an industry-placed PhD project) I've certainly developed my rese...

Re: Are there any part-time voluntary roles that count as sufficient prior experience to the doctorate?

Apologies that you thought my post was insulting, as that was certainly not my intention! For clarity, I'm not suggesting that you just do "a bit of volunteering" and walk straight onto a doctorate - I think you've wilfully misrepresented my post in that regard. My suggestion was part-time volunteer...

Re: Online therapy or remote psychology jobs

I actually created an account to ask pretty much exactly the same question - interesting to see other people are starting to consider this too! If you don't mind I'll piggyback on your thread to ask one more thing, rather than starting another thread. I was wondering what anybody thought about a pot...

Are there any part-time voluntary roles that count as sufficient prior experience to the doctorate?

I graduated with a first-class psychology degree ~4 years ago, and although I've always been very interested in mental health, I was never really confident that I had the maturity to train as a Clinical Psychologist. I'm now working in a research role and happy with this sort of career for the timeb...
