Re: Applying with GAD

On the subject of praise as a motivator, just read this last week http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/mind-the-manager/201302/in-praise-praise Although I wouldn't agree that one size fits all. Part of assertiveness training looks at if one is comfortable to give and receive praise and, as we know, s...

Re: Applying with GAD

Thank you for the thanks :D I am not too familiar with the PhD process or structures - it sounds though like you might be being bullied? Maybe I'm wrong of course and without your supervisor's demands your PhD would be well off track, but from what you are writing, sounds like you feel you are being...

Re: Applying with GAD

Sounds like you are in a difficult situation at work and suffering stress/anxiety is not particularly unusual in these situations - so I'd encourage you not to be too hard on yourself or think that this marks you down as "wrong for the job". It sounds like you and your supervisor have different appr...

Re: IAPT training in kent

It's also worth doing searches generally on internet job sites because I have occasionally seen PWP roles advertised off NHS jobs if it is a third party provider running the IAPT service. To find current providers directly, look on this page http://www.iapt.nhs.uk/services/ Also, I hope you don't mi...

Re: CBT Introductory Course - Is it worth it?

If you are interested in being a PWP I would say, start by working through the types of guided self-help materials that we give to patients, see what you get out of it and if it is an approach that you would want to work with. Check the materials threads in the IAPT forum for examples. They are free...

Re: Clients who are unwilling to engage.

I have not worked with this age group myself but did go to a presentation by Place2Be who work in schools. I remember them saying that in no way should one expect it to be like an adult, to be quite prepared for a child who comes and stares out of the window week after week or plays/draws etc. If th...

Re: IAPT

I only know of IAPT employees on the PG Cert courses although I remember there was a thread about a course opening to non-IAPT (at Exeter possibly? Not sure), so someone else may know something else... If you were to fund yourself through it, you still need to have a clinical placement as the course...

Re: PWP review by UCL

Thoughts?.....Team looks very top heavy with not enough people doing the actual job included and London centric without a good range of different types of services that use PWPs(3rd sector as well as NHS). Could lead to too much theory and not enough reality? A role that is better in theory than in ...

Re: Jerome Blackman's 'Therapist's Answer Book'

He also frequently mentions seeing patients several time a week and long-term. Why is this relevant? Probably didn't make that clear. Relevant for me in the sense that, in looking for advice and inspiration, I look to find that which is relevant to the confines within which I work as a primary care...

Re: Musings on Adam Lanza, the Connecticut shootings

I've also noticed a lot of misogyny in the reporting, lots about how the mother was over protective, pushy and took him to shooting ranges. Not that there should be speculation on blame at all but if they are going to speculate on blame why no speculation on the place of the absent father and the ab...

Re: Mental health nursing student- want to be psychologist

I too would say, if you can bear it, finish the degree as it will give you the choice to then do a masters, maybe a part time masters over two years and you could support yourself with bank work. Also, if it is still in existence, high intensity IAPT training accepts people with mental health nursin...

Re: over worked and underpaid?

It adds another layer of people patients have to talk to before they receive help. It wouldn't add another layer as far as the patients would realise it. In our service the PWPs do the "link" work but would very rarely be the same clinician the patient would go onto work with, even if they stay at ...

Interesting, well sounds like it does not want to be an IAPT service as it hasn't put that in the job description and they are insisting on GBR which is not in the IAPT description of a Band5 position.
