Re: Coronavirus

Is anyone else still doing face to face therapy. No changes have been made in the residential children’s home I work in I think in social care settings, particularly residential care, there is an expectation that life will go on as normal as much as possible. I can see the sense in that in terms of...

Re: Clinical Associate Psychologist?

How about using the search feature and reading the posts on this topic already on the forum? That should be a good starting point.

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

Hi all, First time applicant, Sheffield Lancaster UEA Bangor Interview was a tough cookie...I think my offer to interview and success was due to really believing and chiming with the values and specialisms of the University I got selected for - I would personally consider this something absolutely ...

Re: Can you get onto the doctorate if you're bad at stats?

We are scientist practitioners, not therapists. You need to be able to do the science part, including the research evaluation element in order to get onto training, pass a doctoral level research component to training and progress in your career. Whilst some of these can involve qualitative elements...

Re: UEA / University of East Anglia Interview

I’ve been fortunate enough to be offered an interview at UEA. I wondered if anyone could provide me with any advice specific for the interviews at UEA? Also, I know you cannot share specific questions, but does anyone know if they ask about NHS issues/policies? I’m not too privy to them and wondere...

Re: Converting Canadian degree to UK psychologist

I'm not sure you are right about the residence requirement for British citizens. But an MSc in clinical counselling is an MSc and not a qualification that gets licensure in clinical psychology, so it won't get equivalence here, even if you undergo the long process that an actual clinical psychology ...

Re: Trainee Forensic Psychologist

What stage 2 are your current employers funding? What is your career goal? Do you want to work in prisons? Is there a tie-in period with the potential sponsor of the trainee place? Will your current employers fund the birmingham doctorate?

Re: Does mental health support work get easier or am I maybe not cut out for it?

In my personal opinion this doesn't sound like the right job for you. It wouldn't be fair on the recipients of the service to have a worker who is afraid of them and talking about people who have experienced a lot of trauma in the past and are in a state of acute distress like aliens that you can't ...

Re: Doctorate with children

Training is a full time job (except on the Lancaster course part-time places). The commitment is 9am to 5pm five days per week, with a set number of bookable leave days per year (if I recall correctly the NHS starts at 27 plus bank holidays, unless you have gained extra through long service). It is ...

Re: Support work alternatives

There might also be organisations where support worker roles are suitable, or where reasonable adaptations would make them so. It might be worth applying for a few and then asking.

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

It isn't a path I've seen directly, without either a PhD or teaching on a clinical course first, and academic posts are highly competitive and insecure until you get tenure. But there are research centres of expertise that might be interested in a CP, and roles that don't involve direct therapeutic ...

Re: PhD thoughts

You also need to check that you can get enough funding to make it viable, and a supervisor you get on well with and hold in high regard, in the right geography, whilst studying a topic you will find sufficiently interesting to maintain you through 3-5 years of study and writing a book worth of thesis!
