Re: Tactile clients in CAMHS

I've found this a really interesting discussion, it brought me back to when I was a teenager and I had counselling with a lady, at the end of the sessions she gave me a hug and it was one of the most therapeutic parts of our sessions, in the absence of a good role model for a mother, this ladies war...

Re: Murdered for being who you are...

As this thread was originally about the article linked however... I saw it from a slightly different perspective. When I read the article, my response didn’t revolve around this being about a trans woman in particular. For me, it was about a woman. A woman who was bought, like cattle, and then disc...

Re: Bath 2012 cohort

Me too! Its really difficult to assess how many people reach the academic cut off and if an application to bath will be a good use of a course application or not.

Re: past work experience checks

Unfortunetly I have heard about fellow AP's lying / embellishing their form, which has left me with a massive moral dilema, especially when myself and collegues have been in interviews essentially against them (ie do we inform interviewers). However it is very surprising how 'real' clinical experien...

Re: AP in the interview panel

Hi, I am an AP and recently was on the interview panel for an AP post. I had asked if I could be, to help with my professional development and to gain an understanding of being on the 'otherside'. I think I was as nervous as the interviewee's to bear that in mind. Also I found myself sticking up for...

Re: Adult Autism Group

Hi thanks everyone for your advice. I will have another look on NAS, its such an amazing resource, I think i need to focus myself more when I look on there as I keep getting distracted with all the possible content I could put into a group and forget to focus on the structure and things. Thanks also...

Adult Autism Group

Hi I was wondering if anyone had any experience / advice / papers into setting up a group for adults with autism (high functioning). I have been doing a lit review but the literature appears sparse and NICE guidelines do not appear to be out until June. Currently we are interested in setting up a su...

Re: The multiple-timers thread

Hi everyone, I felt compelled to add something here as a mutliple-timer myself. This is my 3rd year of applying (and, I keep telling myself, my last). Over the last 2 years I've had 5 interviews and been on 3 reserve lists for a place. This year I only have one interview. It's really quite strange,...

Re: The multiple-timers thread

I have to admit I am a lurker for this forum, but mainly I think mainly due to my feelings of lack of progress. I graduated in 2006 and have seen people 'over take' me in this process. However this is a really nice thread and has helped some of my insecurities and it is nice to know that other peopl...

I think Meester may be correct in the author having a particular axe to grind. It seems very unfortunate that there are such divides between professionals. It seems if the author and other critics spent more time working collaboratively with psychologists / psychiatrists / occupational therapists et...

Thanks for being proactive sherwood and calling to clarify!

I had resesigned myself to a rejection by friday evening, so its nice to know there is some hope still, even though I think I messed up the research interview due to lack of clarity!

I wasnt too keen on the first half, thought it was just going to be a horror about getting off the island safe, however I really liked the twist at the end. Although I think it left me feeling very sad, especially the final scene.

hey,

Just to let you know at my interview they said they will let you know if you are successful today, however my friend had an interview there yesterday and they said they will call on monday. So you may be waiting by the phone and expecting the worst...or you may have recieved a call by now!
