Re: Youtube videos for DClinPsy pathways

Hi Melody, welcome back. Great to see more voices springing up to showcase who clinical psychologists are and share advice with those in the earlier stages of the profession. However, we don't usually allow self-promotional posts, so (unless you have paid to advertise here) links to blogs and social...

Re: My Warts & All Journey to Becoming an AP

Yeah, looking widely for jobs (in terms of the population worked with, the nature of the role, and the geographic location) helps, if you are able to relocate and don't have very strong preferences about the nature of the work.

Why not start the thread with some of your own? Otherwise people might think you are trying to write an essay or prepare for an interview and want to harvest their ideas!

Re: Do I want to be a CP? What else could I do other than AP?

Many people regard Assistant Psychologist posts as the only or best way to get a place on clinical training. Whilst AP experience is often "top tier" experience in that it is supervised by a qualified CP and directly involved in psychological services, so it has lots of relevant competenci...

Re: Qualified in psychology abroad and want to work in the UK?

The regulator of psychology practitioners is the HCPC. To practise in the UK using any of their regulated terms, including Clinical Psychologist, you have to satisfy them that you meet the criteria and have broadly equivalent skills to CPs who trained in the UK. If your degree wasn't done in the UK ...

Re: What is Clinical Psychology training composed of?

In a nutshell, training has 3 components. Firstly there is academic teaching, usually done as a block of a few weeks once or twice a year and then around a day a week for the rest of the year (the teaching usually fits academic term times, with 1-2 days teaching per week in term time, and extra rese...

Re: Jordan Peterson - why do practitioners not like him?

Transpires he was also a benzodiazepine addict (since 2016) and ketamine user, who opted for a propofol-sedated detox (the drug that killed Michael Jackson and Prince) that appears to have caused serious damage to his health, and he has subsequently been unable/unwilling to provide any support to h...

Re: AP job with no AP duties - what should I do?

A job has to live up to the job advert, and from your description you are right to feel conned. I'd book a time to talk to HR and/or your line manager, present them with the guidance for the employment of APs and ask how they are going to make it an AP role - which requires an hour of supervision fr...

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread split

Yup, this is an attempt to solicit information that is not in the public domain, and that is clearly against the guidance we ask you to read before using the forum. I'd also note that attempting to cheat in public is especially inadvisable if your ID relates to your name and year of birth, and the s...

Re: Applying to Clinical Psychology with an MSc Psychotherapy and psychotherapy work experience

I'd be cautious in your expectations. The 2:2 will be problematic for most courses, even with an MSc conversion, and you'd likely need experience that demonstrates more of the competencies of a clinical psychologist - research, assessment, working with systems, formulation, evidence-based-practice, ...

Pruning inactive users

For anyone eagle-eyed, you may have noticed our member numbers just dropped by 900 people. This is because we periodically use the auto-prune features on the forum software to delete accounts that register but then never sign in, or those that have not signed in for more than a year, so that our mem...
