Re: Louis Theroux documentary on autism

His name was Nicky. I thought he was very articulate about his feelings and the way he felt he had to respond to challenging comments from other students. Can I ask you to elaborate on why he made you laugh? I did admire the honesty and openness of the mum who, when Louis asked if they should stop f...

DITTO. Only difference being, for me it's not "in case", but rather "because"!!

Re: A reason to be positive...

This evening I was told that my arms "have an aura of sexual confidence". Yes, you did read that right. :shock:

Possibly either the best, worst or oddest compliment I've ever received. Haven't decided yet :lol:

Re: Which stats/research book?

The two I mainly used for my thesis data statistical analysis were: :arrow: "SPSS For Psychologists" (2009) by Brace, Kemp and Snelgar and :arrow: "SPSS Survival Manual" (various versions, I used v.11 from about 2001) by Julie Pallant . Highly recommend both of them for clarity of guidance and expla...

Re: How do I become a clinical neuropsychologist?

I would love to be able to contribute knowledgeably to this discussion - unfortunately I know very little about neuropsychology (beyond basic undergrad-y type learning), and even less about crossover and/or links between EP and clinical neuropsychology!! Sorry :oops: *goes away to read up on clin.ne...

Re: Educational Psychology

Actually I completed the three years of training last summer, but received 'major corrections' in my viva from my thesis examiners, so am officially still classed as a TEP until corrections are completed and I have re-submitted my thesis (and passed the requirements). Hopefully only a few more weeks...

Re: Educational Psychology

I wouldn't say that being a little older than the assumed 'typical' profile of trainees (mid-twenties to mid-thirties) is a disadvantage. Think of all those extra life and work experiences which you have available to potentially draw on :) I know our CP colleagues have discussed trainee age, and exp...

Re: Semi structured interviews- resources and tips?

I would also have suggested the Creswell and Willig texts which you've already come across; there might be a couple of helpful references on our "Books - Stats and Research" Wiki as well. My own training course also leaned heavily towards quantitative methods! In terms of journal articles, if you fi...

Re: Educational Psychology

Moosealoose is right that the situation is made trickier by virtue of the course currently being funded via bursary award, rather than employment+salary in Years 2+3. I have to say that my perceptions of the situation were based on previous years, which of course is no longer up-to-date. However, in...

Re: NHS AP vs Private AP?

"NHS vs private" is something which has been discussed a lot previously on the forum. Do a bit of digging with our search engine, or have a look at these posts. The first one contains a lot of links to similar discussions (although I would still encourage you to familiarise yourself with the search ...

Re: Educational Psychology

Hi, welcome to ClinPsy! It partly depends on how good you are at knuckling down and working hard during private/home study days. If you're the type who can easily be at the laptop at 9am, and work steadily through till 5pm without lots of TV/biscuit/Facebook breaks (...I am not one of these people!!...

Re: Educational Psychology

Just wondering if anyone who is on the course could give me a rough idea of the course calendar e.g. does it normally run term time only or all year round/do you start and finish around same times as schools? and also what weekly timetable is like. I know it will vary from course to course but just...
