Re: 'Psychological services' Website - High concerns

Another example why the term psychologist and the provision of psychological services need to be regulated, not just protected titles!

Re: Do any of the courses offer an unofficial part-time route?

I think it would be misleading to think of "unofficial part-time routes" to clinical training - that would imply it is some unadvertised option that is in fact available through some dubious pathway. That isn't the case. All courses apart from the Lancaster one are full time. However, as G...

Re: Areas of work for clinical psychologists

Clinical psychologists work with a wide variety of people with a wider range of presenting issues. Here is a (by no means exhaustive) list to give some examples... Population Child and Family (CAMHS) - Paediatric/physical health - Child Development/early years - Child and Adolescent Mental Health (C...

Re: HCPC registration for research psychologists

As the others said, there is a big difference between acdemic study of psychology (a PhD) and applied training for clinical practice (the clinical doctorate). Academic qualifications do not count towards the latter, whilst HCPC registration is not required for a career in academia or research. So, n...

Re: CAAP 2023 intake - Edinburgh and Stirling/Dundee

Just to be clear - asking people what to write in an application is against forum rules and could be perceived as trying to cheat the fair selection process. That is probably why neither thread has a reply on it, as it is also against the forum rules to provide information that would undermine a fai...

Re: Does a PhD scholarship covers the cost of living in the UK?

I recently saw a phd that was funded at £20,000 of which £4500 would cover the fees for a home student, or £15,000 the fees for an international student. Beyond that you'd have to cover your own costs of living, perhaps with a part-time job. This page suggests that EU students now have to pay the in...

Re: Pension payment during training

We don't even know what currency you are being paid in, or what country you are working in (though I can see from your IP address it isn't in the UK).

Re: Counselling Business - Good Experience or Not?

I don't think the business element has much relevance, given the doctorate in clinical psychology is sponsored by the NHS and designed to increase the workforce for the NHS. The counselling element may be. I guess either may have some value if you are planning on training in counselling psychology. ...

Re: Fake Counsellors and Psychologists

That's one example of many. There are plenty of horrific examples. We've had survivors post on here about the harm done by Anna Auty, who ran a fake inpatient eating disorder service that nearly killed a child and involved emotional and even sexual harm of vulnerable adults (as well as financial exp...

Re: Working outside usual psychologist role

My first thought is that it is a very bad value way of using their resources, to have you cover a role that can be done for half your salary! It also shows a poor understanding or respect for your role. And I can see that it wouldn't be appropriate to work in two different roles with the same indivi...

Re: Is this ethical/ legal? Psychologist title use.

You can't pretend a HAP post is an AP post. That would be misrepresentation. And nobody said you can get AP or PWP posts without experience. We said you can get them without physically demanding personal care type experience. And yes, there is a part-time training in CP, at Lancaster, so you are wro...

Re: Advice request

Yeah I don't think we can blame the OP for sharing possibly identifying details when previous posters said that they cannot advise without more details. I wasn't blaming him/her. I was just alerting them to a fact they may not have considered - which in the past has led to people requesting to edit...

I still don't feel like I understand what took place, but it makes it even more mystifying to me that you'd post the original two posts if all of that had already happened. I can't see what you were hoping to gain, or even what you hope to gain now by posting about it if you have been vindicated by ...

Re: Advice request

If you don't tell us anything about the nature of the concerns, but say that nobody else thinks they are legitimate concerns on your part - despite having raised them with several different people, that suggests that your perspective is very skew from everybody else's. It is hard to say whether that...

Re: Advice request

I don't really understand what she is doing or what triggered it from your description. But if you have a problem with a supervisor, you can normally discuss it with a trusted member of course staff.
