Just what i was thinking, i might reclaim it in the dirty, slovenly sense.
That is the way it was first directed at me, maybe that is why I am not offended by it.

Re: First came 'reclaim the night...'

Not sureslut has always had such negative connotations as it is used with now, yes maybe not the high status of c**t but somewhat respected at least: Another early meaning was "kitchen maid or drudge" (c. 1450), a meaning retained as late as the 18th century, when hard knots of dough found in bread ...

Re: First came 'reclaim the night...'

I saw about the slutwalk the other day, and thought I might just walk with the slutty London ladies.

I reckon the word c**t has been reclaimed, can't see why slut can't be.

There is of course also 'function' as in the function of a behaviour/thought/emotion.

Re: changes in the NHS

I'd read the no health without mental health document, and think about that in relation to future GP commissioning; and how clinical psychologists can provide leadership/service development/consultation/front line work to the planned changes in delivering services.

Re: Cornwall and Devon

Actually Falmouth would be alright too. Penzance is ok, good bus links to other places, Marazion for instance.

Re: Cornwall and Devon

Without a car, in Cornwall, it'd need to be St Ives or Truro I'd say. St Ives really, but it will be mega busy.

They should just bring back rations and be done with it... then we'll all be lean, healthy whippersnappers! :) I am assume you are not actually serious. But tbh, I find a statement that perpetuates the prejudice towards being overwieght and the value judgments associated with it somewhat difficult ...

Re: Wanting to help people - cliché?

I guess your response to the question doesn't really help in them understanding why you would choose clinical psychology over another 'helping' profession. You mentioned formulation, but you could do that as a CBT therapist, counsellor or other talking therapies practioner.

Re: Services that charge to prepare for interviews?

I think you make valid points Mikel. I guess though, for some candidates, the opportunity to reflect on clinical work and themselves and discuss papers etc are not always as forthcoming as you have described. Not all applicants are supervised, or have that much access to clinical psychologists. I ag...

Re: Payment by results

My understanding of PbR within an IAPT service will be that the service will get paid for a change down in severity range, so in depression say if a client is within the severe range on the PHQ-9, when they start treatment and are in the moderate range when they complete treatment, payment can be aw...

Re: Is IAPT failing people with medical problems?

My definition of IAPT failing would be if it didn't improve access to psychological therapies for particular groups of people who might benefit from such interventions (the use of the word 'failing' was probably somewhat emotive though - just wanted to spark discussion! :wink:). With this in mind I...

Re: Is IAPT failing people with medical problems?

One day we might find that history judges the psychoanalysts who think they are leading to a cure in a medically unexplained condition in the same way that we now judge those who thought that it was down to praying and religous belief that people who most probably had relapsing/remitting multiple s...
