Re: Choosing DClinPsy Thesis Topic

I'd say the most important thing with a research thesis is to pick something you are interested in. It will take much longer and a lot more effort than you expect, and you need to maintain motivation until the end! My thesis topic was something that had been an interest of mine since undergraduate d...

Re: 2020 realization

TLDR: Be very focused. Seek out the right people to support you. Try to work out the next couple of steps and focus on that, and as you make progress the vision will get bigger. Long version: I think, for me, once I was clear I was leaving the NHS (which wasn't even on the horizon until 2008, and on...

Re: 2020 realization

1. To appreciate what I have got. A fantastic partner, a chance to steer my own business, a nice home with outside space, kind kids who ask great questions, and a loose network of supportive and inspiring people around me. 2. That I've become more political (in the broadest sense) over time, and I h...

Re: Can I apply for assistant posts before I officially graduate?

I agree with Geishawife. Enjoy the journey, don't try to find a mythical fastest route to the horizon. But in my experience shortlisters will bin any applicant that doesn't have the essential criteria in hand at the point of shortlisting. After all, I'm trying to pick 4-5 candidates to interview out...

Re: Pre-Qual - Volunteering to do Cognitive Rehabilitation Exercises

If you PM me I'll give you my details to send me a recent application to review. I won't be able to do it right away, as I've got a lot on my to do list tht must take priority at the moment, but I can usually fit in some time within 3-4 weeks.

Story Stem Training from the Anna Freud Centre

If you conduct assessments of young children to explore their attachment relationships and templates of family functioning, for the court or in your clinical work, story stems are a key technique and becoming accredited in using them has never been easier, as the training is now available online on ...

Re: Should I do an accredited Forensic Psychology masters as a fallback?

Well I hope you enjoy your next steps. That's the key thing really, to make the most of your experiences, as they will build upon each other. BTW If my work is of interest, we will have some psych grad field-worker posts coming up to advert next month, probably 2 or 3 of them or several part-time ro...

Re: Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

Well said, Beluga. Plenty of examples of ISIS recruits coming from nuclear families with fathers too. A quick search brought up several papers with numerous examples (eg here ) and a fairly complex list of vulnerability factors including fathers with multiple wives here that also gives several examp...

Another job site to check

Is everyone aware of https://www.diversifying.io ? It seems to be another site where academic and public sector jobs are advertised, with more of a diversity focus and lower charges than jobs.ac.uk or other sites/agencies making it attractive to academic employers and those in charities and the publ...

Hey Kal El, you'd think after 9 years and 127 posts you'd know it is my website :D
What you wrote doesn't merit the energy of a serious reply. So, just know that if you are racist or sexist or deny the reality of racism or sexism on my forum again, you will be evicted from it.

Re: Trainee Psychologist- beating myself up over rookie mistake (breaching confidentiality)

Phoning my service manager at 9pm to admit to losing a burglar alarm fob for the building particularly stands out in my mind! That's nothing. I got locked in, with the alarms set around me (including a police alert silent alarm), after my first day in a new job and had to phone the on-call numbers ...

Re: Lost and confused

Why not use a reference from your MSc and a reference from your BSc and skip the retail references altogether? Also, think of posts in the care sector that don't involve personal care - working in a children's home, a group home for people with learning disabilities or a day centre for people with d...

Re: Trainee Psychologist- beating myself up over rookie mistake (breaching confidentiality)

These things happen. I'd try to speak to her and apologise. But nobody is perfect and you'll learn from it, so try not to be too harsh to yourself. I was part of a worse mistake as a qualified CP in the NHS. I wrote a formulation letter about a lady's difficulties including how she had felt like the...
