Re: How the Wiki works

We appreciate it if anyone has time to check and update wiki entries in this way. It is always good to check that the links still work, and the information is still current. Although a lot of the posts appear to have been written a long time ago, they are frequently updated and improved, so even a p...

Re: ClinPsy forum wants you!

Feel free to either paste it here, or on the wiki concerned. The admins normally check for new posts since their last visit, and will see it either way. And I think the change in title is a good suggestion :)

Re: I want to do too many things!

Writing all this out I think my best bet would be to research more about the role within prisons and to get a job as a forensic social worker to find out if my heart is in forensics before I start shelling out cash on postgraduate degrees and probably taking a pay cut. I won't be entitled to the ma...

Re: I want to do too many things!

I'd check out whether you ever do get to do meaningful therapeutic work in forensic settings. My concern would be about pseudo engagement, given the overt consequences of appearing to engage or not engage in what is on offer, and also about the system itself - do the interventions really work? does ...

Re: DCLIN 2019 Edinburgh second interview

You've learnt you are good enough for training, so the only question is whether this is your year, and Tayside or Borders is your place. Worrying serves no purpose now, so just be kind to yourself and let the journey unfold in its own time.

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

1. Feeling upset and angry about a discussion happening on my facebook page about LGBT rights. According to one of my facebook 'friends,' human rights are the cause of "so much trouble in this country." Apparently it's ok for a lesbian couple to get beaten up on a public bus because "nobody wants t...

Re: Should I apply for the next intake - Part II

I'm sorry Miriam, from what you're saying it looks like that the doctoral programme prefers uk candidates. This information is clearly not stated anywhere, there is no mention at all about the criteria of being familiar with the British culture and NHS, or being British only. Do you have any offici...

Re: Time to Give Up? *sad face*

Lingua beat me to it! Getting an AP post is waaaaay more competitive than getting on training. About 3% of applicants for AP posts are called to interview and about 1% secure a post. About 25% of applicants get an interview for clinical training, and 15% secure a place. But as others said, it sounds...

Re: Should I apply for the next intake - Part II

There are wiki entries on most of these topics, neuropsy, so do check out the existing content on the forum. As to the rest of your post, I think it is quite unrealistic to expect a clinical psychology training course to train candidates about British culture, the structure of British services, and ...

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

I'd agree with that, PinkFreud19. I think a decade ago I was persuaded to not identify as feminist because of the pervasive narrative of the straw feminist, and it has been a long journey to make me clear enough about my views (and the extent of the problems) to be this outspoken.

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

1.) I feel so worried about my cat. :( Since the kitten arrived she's seemed depressed. She gets on with him well enough (no signs of aggression other than the odd hiss when he tries to treat her tail as a chew toy) but she no longer comes trotting up to me as soon as she sees me, she doesn't purr ...

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

I'd say it's always worth finding out why a parent harmed a child* and likewise it is absolutely legitimate to think about why the messages of the alt right are resonating with so many people at the moment, including Peterson's. But that doesn't mean that we have to admire him, accept what he is doi...

You can make a donation to the whiteboard fund and I'll review your covering letter like I did for the person in the other thread.
