Re: Self-help for anxiety / excessive checking

Why not get some therapy? It is clearly impacting on your quality of life.

Re: Do I need to do a masters?

Or you could find a way to do a piece of research at work, or take one session per week out to work in a university or with a CP with active research interests - it would be a lot cheaper and less time consuming whilst still proving your academic credentials. But if you are going to do the HI traini...

BPS diversity survey

Here are some of my comments. Feel free to use/amend if you feel similarly: What do I think of current selection process in terms of diversity? I think there are lots of "pipeline issues" about how people learn about CP, how they gain A level and degree grades that are competitive if facing more sys...

Re: Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

Yeah, she's an anti-feminist who claims to be a feminist, and argues against the straw feminist rather than the issues. It wasn't the topic of her academic positions (her qualifications are in philosophy) and she has long since sold any academic credentials in favour of preaching the platform of her...

Re: Advantages of therapy delivered by a CP

In a general sense, we are not necessarily the best therapists, particularly where the task is to deliver a specific model of therapy. A lot of therapy is about the quality of the relationship, and the degree to which the individual feels heard and understood, rather than the model of therapy used o...

Re: Volunteer research role

I'd speak to academics who are local and doing clinically relevant research. They are much more likely to be research active than clinicians and might be able to identify something you can get involved with.

not overtly fascist figurehead I should also add that plenty of (to my eye) overtly fascist figureheads have been lifted too, from Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, Steve Bannon, Milo Yiannopoulos and Nigel Farage to Donald Trump himself. However, like Christina Hoff Summers, Peterson's academic credentials a...

Re: Improving Diversity in Clinical Psychology - Hiring Assistant Psychologists

You can't offer unpaid posts in the private sector, and I'm one of the people who has campaigned against their use in the NHS and other organisations for full-time or long-term posts or where it could be considered to replace a paid worker (which is minimum wage evasion) or favour certain demographi...

Re: Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

I think therapeutic models and ideas, with the exception of CBT, seem to have very little penetration into wider culture. Jordan was quite successful in the use of a pre-existing large audience of "everyday people" to introduce psychological concepts that really resonate with people. It's frustrati...

Hi, do you have any further information on how the extra places might have diversity tied to them? Where was this initially indicated?

Re: Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

I also think he deserves credit, where credit is due. A number of his ideas relating to trying to take responsibility in times of difficulty or crisis, steering away from avoidance, finding meaning in life, and being as prosocial as possible, are all helpful. Sure, they're not necessarily his ideas...

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

Yeah, everyone who uses the forum is the intended participant pool. We just wanted to know whether stress reflected application status, and whether this was "contagious" amongst forum users when we originally set up the survey. But we absolutely want all career stages who use the forum to participat...
