Re: BPS membership as a qualified

I am a little saddened to have returned to this thread to see the responses here. I hope that i made it fairly clear that I was aware of the arguments for/ against membership and was asking for information on the practicalities of joining, as this was not clear on the website. I was asking for factu...

Re: BPS membership as a qualified

Thanks for your replies. Yes I am aware of the arguments for and against membership, but thanks for sharing your thoughts anyway. It seems FPOP can be joined without membership of the BPS & DCP (for anyone interested) and so I will take this route until i can afford the outlay of full membership...

BPS membership as a qualified

Hi all not been around for a while but thought i would pop my head back up now life is regaining some normality post training! I have been in a dilemma/ confused state regarding BPS membership and would welcome some qualified perspective. I want to join the DCP and my relevant SIG of this. In order ...

Re: Blog: "To fat and back" - a shallow look at obesity

Loula i heard the same programme on R2 the other day and was equally as surprised to find that i didn't throw the radio/ turn it off before she stopped speaking. I am in no doubt that this is pure publicity and that she had clearly been 'coached' on what to say. Never the less, she did at least ackn...

Re: Challenging behaviour workshop - suitable tasks/activiti

My tuppance worth... that sounds like a task we did recently in which we read over a blurb about ourselves and crossed off anything that would not have been possible if x had happened to us. In our case this was homelessness but it could equally have been had a head injury, learning disablity, been ...

Re: Homoworld film

I did not refer to myself as being 'frustrated' or 'angry' and placing those emotions on to me is inappropriate and incorrect. I said at the time I found the film distressing. Presently I do not, I feel rather dispassionate towards it. Which leads me in to my second point, perhaps it isn't anyone's...

CFT for trauma/ PTSD book

Hey all I am currently doing a lot of trauma work and have a good working understanding of CFT from a non trauma focused perspective. I am after a book that extends the ideas to trauma specific work. I have been looking at the two Deborah lee books and wondering if anyone has used them/ would recomm...

Re: Homoworld film

I am afraid i have to disagree entirely with this. I actually felt it was a very clever and well designed film. Yes it portrays all the 'silly stereotypes' and uses many cliche's but would you have thought any better of it/ would it even be watched by so many people, if it took its self desperately ...

Re: memory questionnaires

It looks like it does, and its not one I have already, thanks Lakeland! Broadly I am writing about the content of measures aimed at adult/ older adult groups but more specialist measures may be interesting for me to comment on and draw comparisons. I think that qualifies you for a dancing brain thou...

Re: memory questionnaires

Thank you! Unfortunately I have the MOCA and it is a test rather than a questionnaire so doesn't quite qualify :) but… i feel bad so instead of the dancing brain (still up for grabs!) here is a thank you badge! http://www.thenaughtyseat.co.uk/ekmps/shops/rescapeltd/images/super-effort-well-done-stic...
