Re: Any AP's/psychology graduates in Glasgow?

Hi guys, I'm originally from Glasgow but have jumped ship to the East Coast for a new job. Is WOSPAG officially no more? I knew Avril Smith, the AP in Forensic CAMHS used to run it but I also know she had a baby. However, I thought someone would have taken this up in her place. I just wanted to let ...

Thanks

Re: Research ideas on learning disabilities

Why don't you do a service provision audit to see how well the service stands up against NSF and other DOH guidelines and legislation.

E.g. For my Postgrad I evaluated the social inclusiveness of the service I worked in.

Re: BBC3 - "Don't Call Me Crazy" on tonight (24.06.13) 9pm

It was a bit odd that the two OTs seemed to be doing a majority of the therapeutic work , although I assume this is because any psychology work was not filmed due to confidentiality agreements for filming (odd that that used their real names and filmed MDT meetings though).. Having worked on variou...

Re: Why is the average age 28?

I have now read through the entire thread and am glad I did as it made for very interesting reading with lots of themes to explore. My thoughts then: To go back to the original discussion; age, in my opinion, is just another potential barrier to forming a good therapeutic alliance such as socioencon...

Re: Where to go from here

I just wanted to throw my 2 pence in here and remind you as well about the value of research skills on some courses. Many institutions, especially the older ones, will ask about your understanding of psychological research methods. I don't know how much you covered this in your undergrad. I don't me...

Hey Srlb2 I've just been through exactly the same process. I have a 2 year fixed-term RA post and I've just applied for finance for a car. I suppose the main thing is the type of finance. If you opt for PCP you're effectively just hiring the car from the dealer and if it's no longer financially viab...
