Re: Hertfordshire 2017

Congratulations to you all...I may be biased, but I am going to embrace it: you've made it onto the best course! It such an experience; a second home for me. I wrote in a paper recently that training is just as much about becoming a clinical psychologist, as it is about becoming a person again. Hert...

Re: Unite or Unison?

The next BPS President is actually one of the Unite reps - so hopefully she will continue the more active approach that the current and former President have...In particular, supporting members in responding to the threats to future funding. I used to be with Unison, and felt quite distanced and tha...

Cognitive Analytic Therapy & young people

Please someone correct me if I am wrong (I haven't done the most systematic of searches, so could easily be wrong...); but there doesn't seem to be much of an evidence base for CAT being used with young people?

Interested to hear if there is!

Pre-Qual & Beyond Diagnosis: A focus group

Hi all - I'm trying to build up a broad picture of the DCP's public position on alternatives to diagnosis. Thus you may have seen my other post relating to a survey - now this is a focus group proposal (so less of the online), and specifically aimed at Pre-Qual. I have completed 1 focus group with p...

Re: Pre-Qualification Group Annual Conference 2016

Hi - GREAT to hear that you will be joining us! You are right, if in a pre-training role or as a trainee, and a DCP member, you will automatically be enlisted as a Pre-Qual member. So select the lower price for sure...The £30 charge is for the qualified members. In terms of booking, you shouldn't ha...

Re: Putting together a book proposal...feedback wanted!

I pulled together some similar ideas for a book proposal actually...But mine may have been more aligned to narrative accounts of different individual stories. If you're in early stages and looking to possibly buddy up, then give me a DM or tweet etc. I've got a whole structure lined-up and thoughts ...

Re: Things you've learned at work today

Today I learned that the power within the therapy room will always belong to the animals. Firstly, attempts to video record sessions will fail. The cat will always find the lens and proceed to sit in front of it. Secondly, leaves floating across a stream sound great, but when the dog breaks free and...
