Re: Seeking Guidance on Supporting Statement

I don't mind giving it a look. But if you have "very limited 'actual psychology experience'" then you should probably be applying for support work, care assistant, residential care, classroom support and other first-rung-of-the-ladder posts rather than AP posts. It seems very likely that no matter h...

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

Maybe I am missing something, but I am not aware of any counter examples who have had the same impact of Peterson. I agree that there are intelligent and articulate men and women who have made a case against his views, but they haven't got hold of the popular imagination or had the same resonance. ...

Re: If you want me to review your application form (now closed)

Dear Miriam, Hope you are well. I was wondering if you had any space to review my doctorate application at all? I would be more than happy to donate and also would like to join your webinar if that is an option please. I did personal message you on the forum a few days ago but this may not have bee...

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

The problem with any of these alt-right versus progressive debates is it is like putting petrol against water - the rules of the game are not the same for both parties. One can start fires everywhere, whilst the other then becomes preoccupied with putting them out, and can't make any points of their...

Re: Forensic over clinical?

I've got a colleague who got onto clinical training from being a forensic trainee, so it must be possible. I've always considered it to be another bit of relevant experience that enhances rather than detracts from her CV. She is particularly fab though.

Re: Participants wanted: Childhood experiences and personality traits.

I've done it too. Seems quite interesting. There are a few formating oddities (hard returns where they shouldn't be, changes of font size) and some ambiguous questions (eg there are plenty of my sociopolitical beliefs might be seen as odd/bizarre/unusual by a proportion of the population), and I did...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

Congratulations Miriam. So good to see that all the hard work and effort is paying off. Let's hope the business continues to go from strength to strength. P.S. Congrats Miriam. :) I read about BERRI on your blog once and it sounds like a really useful tool. Something like that would have made a big...

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

I just see an overwhelming amount of comments (again anecdotal, but I guess at least they are on Youtube for anyone to see) about people deciding not to end their lives because of what he has said. For me that has to stand for something - but again I could be wrong. But it's why I am really relucta...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. My company has won £50k of grant funding from the local council to help us prepare to scale up. 2. We are used in 125 children's homes, some fostering and educational settings, and have our first two secure units going live soon. We are now talking to 24 local authorities about using BERRI in the...

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

Thanks Spatch. And great post about Peterson :) I think working out how to deal with issues like this is never easy, and we each just do our best. I think for men involved in discussions about feminism (or white folk involved in debates about racism, etc) it is hard to know whether picking up the ba...

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

Well said all. And for the record, I stand by my view he is evil and an embarrassment to the profession. Let us not forget that he first came to prominence for objecting strongly to Canadian laws that mention genders or families having their wording slightly revised to be inclusive of people who are...

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

I am a bit disappointed in how this thread developed. I think we could have easily engaged with the points raised by MrO860 on his terms, without needing to no platform based on evidence and systematic dismantling (and to be fair Miriam does go into this). Yet, I can't help think there was an oppor...

Yup.

I'm sorry but this is just nonsense, as are your threats via PM to suspend my account. I'm conducting this discussion entirely in good faith, so to accuse me of trolling is simply unfair.

Re: Issues with Diversity in Clin Psy Trainees Recruitment

I fear the points being raised by mr0860 are not just found in gamergate and MRA forums. I come across these views daily - in my family, my friends, my clients, my colleagues, in the media and in political discourse. In my experience, my feminist lens is generally the one viewed as extreme - even a...
