Re: Unsuccessful application? Want a post-mortem of your form?

I did four more yesterday and two more tonight. They seem to take me 30-40 minutes each, when really I'd want them to take 20-30. But I'm getting through them steadily, and it seems like my feedback is helpful for recipients. I think there are 14 left in the queue, so if I can do a couple of hours o...

Re: Unsuccessful application? Want a post-mortem of your form?

I've reached £500 of donations for the school interactive whiteboard from these reviews - although I will talk to them about whether some kind of remote teaching tool would be more useful given the current climate - but I haven't done any more reviews yet, as I have a report due in on Monday. I'll g...

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

Don't worry, I think it's fine to have a colour code reminder (and a bit of wishful thinking!)

Re: BSc vs MSc vs PGDip

Thank you. This is very helpful. I'm going to get on with my MSc application asap. If I don't get the UEL scholarship I'll do the BSc because I don't have £4,500 a year up front (who does?!) If you are employed, you might be able to get an employer to pay the fees up front and then take them back o...

Re: Unsuccessful application? Want a post-mortem of your form?

Update: I've had 24 requests, 14 people have made the donation and sent over their form, and I've done 6 reviews so far, so there are 8 sitting in the queue. I'm quite enjoying doing them. It gives me something to do that doesn't require quite as much sustained focus as my court work whilst I adjust...

Re: Unsuccessful application? Want a post-mortem of your form?

If it's still in your outbox then it hasn't been opened by the receiver yet (who sounds like they've got a lot to get through!). Yes, this. If I get more PMs than I have spaces in my inbox they sit unread until I can clear space out of my inbox - so don't panic and resend or delete them, please jus...

Re: Unsuccessful application? Want a post-mortem of your form?

Okay, I'm drowning in these now! I don't mind working my way through them whilst I've got capacity and am working from home, and it is great that I'll be able to make a larger contribution to the charity, but it will take me a while until I catch up enough to clear the space in my inbox for the 18 n...

Re: Coronavirus

Most of my anxiety around this is personal. I'm in a high risk group myself and not getting very far at work with adapting working arrangements yet (unless I'm actually sick - and, if I'm sick, I'm likely to be critically ill so that becomes a bit moot). It's a scary time to be a human person just ...

Coronavirus

It is out there and causing a great deal of anxiety, so I wanted to make us a thread about it - but also to contain all posts on this topic to one place that people can avoid if they are feeling anxious. I've certainly been feeling anxious. I've taken a few different types of actions to let me feel ...

Re: BSc vs MSc vs PGDip

MSc. Going back to undergrad level doesn't make sense, and PGDip isn't enough, plus it will give the potential of quantitative research.

Re: Therapy Training after the DClinPsy

I know that Ruthie did CBT training after the doctorate. She said it was this one: https://www.octc.co.uk/university-courses/postgraduate-diploma-in-cognitive-behavioural-therapy There are probably other places too. IAPT services often fund newly qualified psychologists to do the training so worth l...

Unsuccessful application? Want a post-mortem of your form?

Every year I am asked to review forms before applications are submitted, but over the last few years I have been increasingly asked to review forms that were unsuccessful to help people see if there is something concrete they can do differently next time, think about what experience to gather over t...

Re: Converting Canadian degree to UK psychologist

That sucks. Is the training in Canada funded, or do you have to pay? Could you self-fund the course in the UK? If it isn't funded in Canada, it might be cheaper to self-fund in the UK, or do the CoP doctorate!
