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

Thank you so much, everyone who has sent such warm wishes and love regarding my sister-in-law. She has rallied enough to be discharged home with the palliative care team following her up there. Her condition is terminal, but not imminent (if that makes sense??) so we are in a sort of "how long is a ...

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

1) My very dear sister-in-law is very ill in hospital with "complications" from treatment for her secondary cancer. Despite being so poorly, she remains one of the most positive people I have ever met. I am totally in awe of her strength of will and determination. 2) So grateful my youngest nephew w...

Re: Assistant Practitioner Vs Assistant Psych

I agree with Miriam, if you are offered the role take it. Do remember that you can develop many clinically relevant skills in jobs other than AP. Many people get on to the doctoraate every year without ever having beeen an AP. It's not about the job title, it's about what you make of it and how you ...

Re: Scrambled Eggs

First of all, slow down and take a deeo breath! I sense that you are getting a little "knotted up" with all your questions and you're almost talking yourself out of things before you've even started getting into them! So, relax a little bit and you'll make more sense of things. First of all, your ag...

Re: Postgrad CBT course is being a support worker enough ex?

I agree 100% with Lingua. FOCUS ON THE HERE AND NOW!! Any number of changes could take place in the next few years (in you, in IAPT, in the selection criteria, etc) and advice given now is irrelevant to then! You really are better off forgetting "what next" and focusing on the only thing you can con...

Re: Postgrad CBT course is being a support worker enough ex?

I'm confused! In a post in the Psychology Degree sectin from earlier this month you state you are just starting your degree!! You cannot have obtained a degree in less than a month! So, do you have a degree or not?

Re: Counselling Psychology Application

Hi. Congrats on getting a place! I have an interview later this month. Do you mind me asking examples of questions you were asked in the interview? Thanks Forum guidelines do not permit giving people questions from specific courses as it confers an unfair advantage. There is a big list of questions...

Re: Beginning the journey

At the risk of being accused of dampening enthusiasm, I would strongly recommend that you don't think in terms of plans like this. It is great that you ARE enthusiastic about CP, but what you've outlined above, in my view at least, is far, far too focused on the future. This can be counterproductive...

Re: Disclosing personal trauma to supervisor

If you are confident about your relationship with your supervisor I think it is entirely appropriate to share this information. You are under no obligation to do so, but if there IS a possibility this could affect your practice (not saying it will!)then you need to be able to identify this and explo...

I have never known anyone have to produce school certificates. I am pretty sure your degree certificates are more than enough.

Re: Application “honesty”

I would say forget them and focus on yourself. I do understand your frustration at a person having received that amount of help, but what will it benefit you if you report it? How are you going to prove your suspicions? Will it make any difference toYOUR chances of being accepted if you report it? I...

Re: Publications on application

I'm afraid if you have only submitted you probably can't list them. If they had been accepted subject to a few changes you could list them as "in press", but if you have had no feedback on them yet and don't know when or even if they will be published, you cannot really use them. Whilst I'm not ques...

Re: placing a future role in doctorate application

My main issue with listing a job that the applicant hasn't even started yet is that everything associated with it depends on hypotheticals. Yes, you hope that the job will offer you X, Y and Z, but what if it doesn't? What if the role, in reality, teaches you nothing more than you already know? For ...
