BABCP accreditation question

I'm hoping to tap into the wisdom on this forum. I've been going through the BABCP accreditation forms this morning to work out what extra experience I'll need to gain. I'm hoping to submit a provisional application within the next year. Does anyone know what can count for CPD/post-core training CPD...

Thanks Mishi!
I'd had my head buried in a formulation and therapeutic letter for a client I'm struggling with.
Doing better today!

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

1) Having a morning of feeling an inadequate psychologist - it still rears it's head several years after qualifying! 2) On the other hand one thing I love about this profession is I will always be learning and having new reflections until the day I peg out 3) My dog is very grounding...and doesn't s...

Re: Psychology Degree Advice

Having gained qualifications from lots of universities and taught at several I feel I can say with some experience that the Open University is not behind the times! In so many ways they are at the forefront. Random youtube videos do not give a high quality psychology degree. YouTube videos should be...

Re: Worried about my disability

I'm wary of sharing too much on a public forum but basically the Uni made life as difficult as possible for me and others with chronic or recurrent conditions. They might have coped better with a consistent and permanent disability. However, I have heard other courses have been more supportive. Hope...

Re: Worried about my disability

I wish I could give a positive story but my experience was awful. I would advise you look for courses with a reputation for being supportive to trainees and I hope things have improved.

Re: Should I apply to the for the next intake?

It seems reasonable to apply with that experience. You can use the time between now and the application date to reflect on your experience and develop your reflective abilities.

Re: Part time work as an AP and PWP

I've not done thins myself but have heard of others doing it. Some people have canvassed for volunteer assistant psychologist roles for 0.5 to 1 day a week. Potentially, you might be able to arrange flexible working arrangements e.g. 5 days condensed into 4.5 days with your PWP role. Alternatively y...

Re: Online therapy or remote psychology jobs

I'd echo the posts above and suggest looking at becoming a CBT therapist - you'd get the BABCP accreditation and it seems like there are more places offering this online than other approaches.

Working abroad

Can anyone give any advice about where to work abroad as a clinical psychologist for a short period e.g. 2 years. I know Canada, New Zealand and Australia are possibilities. Are there any others? Unfortunately I can only speak English fluently.

Re: DCLIN 2019 Newcastle - reference

I've come across this in other organisations before and I don't know what the answer is with the dclinpsy application. Perhaps you could post the outcome for future applicants?

All the best and I hope you get your interview.

Re: Career advise

You'll need to ensure you have graduate basis for registration (GBR) with your degree (speak to the British Psychological Society) and then get relevant experience - see the rest of the forum for advice on experience.
