Re: educational psychology to clinical/counselling psych

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply! I am familiar with Amber Elliot and her very good book (along with Miriam's). I am delivering some training to schools on relational trauma (and I know Kim Golding is just about to release a book on exactly that!) as part of the Y2 training and the ide...

educational psychology to clinical/counselling psych

Hi, just posting here for advice. I'm starting Y2 in educational psychology training and enjoying it very much. I have gained insights I didn't have before the course and an idea of where I would like to work, and how, in the future. I've enjoyed most work with looked after children, however would l...

Working privately

For any qualified CPs out there, I want to ask a few questions about private work If you do work privately, in your words what is the difference between NHS and private work? What are the advantages of working privately, and the disadvantages? How many years after working in the NHS did you begin ad...

Re: Essex interview feedback 2019

I thought this was a really interesting read! I am in the odd position of being both offered a place for educational psychology training at Birmingham this year (not without its own application challenges - 13% success rate), and a service user being seen by a psychologist at the CMHT again locally....

Re: is privilege a given?

what a lovely answer - thank you Just thought it would be a bit odd to be talking about enjoying my little garden in my house, that we live in relative peace etc. I won't be scared to answer truthfully but as you say, the experience of using services (I have had both, being under the care of a menta...

is privilege a given?

Just curious, may not attract much traffic but curious on anyone's thoughts I have just completed my high intensity training, and someone on my course, has applied and had an interview this year. I am similarly thinking of applying next year. We are both mid 30's and have worked in other professions...

Re: Calling people "non-qualified(s)"

I'm just completing the pg dip children's IAPT qualification whereas I am known as trainee. The only time I have been referred to as non qualified is working as a HCA, by nurses, and yes it is a nasty term. So that is why I won't be doing that in a hurry (also no need as there are band 5/6 IAPT post...

Re: CWP - any previous trainees?

I'm on the course now. I applied with 2 years camhs experience but most have less. Most don't have direct experience. I was supposed to go on enhanced evidence based practice for existing staff and am finding th e course a bit slow to get going. For someone without much direct experience it's a grea...

Re: Pwp extra funding possibilities?

Ask! I worked as a camhs school trainer, 2 years, band 5 and managed to get mid point band 4. I'm a youth worker and want to use this to start applying for camhs tier 2 posts. Be aware though the training starts off REALLY basic and the initial section on assessment can be like pulling teeth, partic...

Re: dual registered psychologists

I have to say I am one of the few (reading that paper) who would love to be an 0-25 psychologist. I can't think of anything that would suit me better. I really did consider educational psychology but that would mean closing out the nhs, do clinical and it closes the local authority door. It is somet...

I ask this as I am a trainee but when I quality would like to apply for the certificate of com...
