Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

Hi! Well done, first of all! Great news for you and reassuring that a short span of time can lead to good progression indeed. I wanted to ask about the trainee CBT role. How did you get onto this? I’m very interested but although I have a teaching background (not SEN) I don’t meet the core professi...

Re: Reserve list for places 2020

I have withdrawn my offer from Trent (Lincoln-based placement) so there should be some movement on the reserve list! My friend got your place, and they are delighted! Do you mind me asking what number your friend was on the reserve list please? Big congrats to them!! They were first reserve, which ...

Re: Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

Thank you very much everybody! This is really helpful. I have started by recommending the blogs - WaitButWhy is my favourite, and I definitely remember coming across drnerdlove during my last phase of dating. I am going to take a look at the books for my own general interest and then leave them lyin...

Re: High 2:1? What next?

Definitely have a look at the short-listing procedures of courses you are interested in. For example, I got rejected from 1 course for not meeting the academic threshold with a distinction on a Masters conversion course. Many courses will include things like published research in their academic scor...

Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

I have a family member in a bit of a low place at the moment - struggling with difficulties like relationships, career and finances, that I'm sure will be familiar to many. He's quite interested in psychology, and is currently finding solace in Jordan Peterson. He also finds anything from a sports/a...

Re: Anyone know of any studies on Assistant Psychologist Stress/Wellbeing/Burnout?

I believe the research is similar on trainee teachers - drop out rates are very high during training and early career. And also high levels of stress for PhD students. I wonder if there is something wider about being an early career professional?

Re: Deductive reasoning screening tests discussion

Above all, I would say most methods of selection for courses do directly, and harshly, discriminate against those that are not 'psychologically minded'. I will leave it up to you if you think that is good or bad. I'd be really interested to hear you expand on this, Spatch. Anecdotally, I definitely...

Re: How did people pay rent and support themselves doing a counselling psychology doctorate ?

I know of someone in Manchester who got a university-based scholarship. I think it gave them a stipend, a bit like a funded PhD would pay.

Re: Can you do research full-time after a DClinPsy?

In my university, it is quite competitive to even get the split academic-clinician posts. The people who go into them quickly tended to have PhDs or significant research experience before doing the ClinPsyD, and subjectively they have reputations as being the brightest and best of their cohorts acad...

Re: Choosing a course by location

I would consider your values - for me, my personal life comes before my work life, so I never considered applying too far away. Having roots is a tie, but life is so much more rewarding for me when I'm close to my friends, partner and a city I love. Many (most?) trainees find training is a bit of a ...

Re: Have any APs successfully gotten onto a HI CBT course?

Yes, I knew an AP who got on to HI training. She had a non-IAPT mental health background, worked briefly (literally a few weeks) as an AP in IAPT, and then was successful in getting a HI training place in the same service. Do some swotting up on how IAPT works in terms of stepped care, outcomes-dri...

Re: What is the importance of the institution?

As far as I'm aware, the institution doesn't matter. What does matter is the research to teaching balance, as your psychological research skills are essential for applications. So you definitely want to pick a masters over a PGDip conversion course, make sure a research-heavy dissertation is availab...
