Re: Perfectionism in children

I would second the book as well! a young adult client of mine bought it herself as a way of starting to address her perfectionism and she liked it (thought found it difficult as she even wanted to do the wrecking 'perfectly'!) I think it is simple enough to work with someone around 11 years old

Re: Undergraduate Placements

Hi Charlotteawood, I did a sandwich course for my undergrad and thought I would highlight that I did a research assistant post for my placement in a clinically relevant area, supervised by a clinical psych, it was brilliant experience and definitely helped me get an AP job post graduation. It may no...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

t's impossible. Except it's not impossible because people do it, so it's clearly just something I can't do. Which is an issue considering what I am needing to do in the very near future. This happened to so many people in my cohort as well as me - although I got round it by making my lit review mor...

Re: Working with Children with ASC

In terms of clothes as a support worker I often wore jeans, t shirt and a jumper (check policies on jeans though). Nothing low cut, nothing short, clothes that were easy to move around in and that I didn't care if got a little pulled out of shape. no dangly ear-rings and I don't think necklaces were...

Re: Clinical Psychology or PhD?

Just to add to the options of Phd's/research posts after DClinPsy......At least two of my cohort have gone on to do research based posts after completing the DClinPsy. One as a lecturer (they did have a Phd prior to the DClinPsy) with a small amount of clinical work as well and another has gone on t...

Re: Qualified CBT therapist - will I have problems applying?

Hi Elf62, Just a quick note to say we had 3 PWPs and 1 Hi intensity/CBT therapist on my cohort (we've just qualified). It was not a barrier to them getting on the course, and obviously they had some really good knowledge already for the CBT teaching. I can't really comment on their experiences, but ...

Re: Year abroad

I had two years abroad, after school and during uni - one was linked to psychology. They have never disadvantaged me in qualifying as a CP. Life is short, if the focus is only ever on getting on the course you won't enjoy the ride. Take your time, it is not a race, enjoy and value the jobs that lead...

Re: First Ever Research Assistant Interview

I'm sorry to hear that. I agree they should of informed you. I understand not informing applications if they were unsuccessful prior to interview as happens a lot with AP jobs but after interview I feel they should have let you know.

I hope you have received some useful feedback for your next job

Re: Online study about clinical supervision

Sorry I have just read the participant information sheet which says you need to have had at least 4 sessions of supervision with your supervisor (who also needs to be a qualified CP) to take part.

If you are still recruiting in a couple of months I will come back and take part.

Re: Online study about clinical supervision

How qualified do qualifieds need to be?! I qualified this year and have been in my post all of 3 days! Would be happy to help, but don't want to skew results as most of my answers would be in relation to training.

Re: First Ever Research Assistant Interview

Many things can get in the way of interviewers feeding back when they originally planned to. The last job I interviewed for said at the end of the interview they would let people know by the next day. I was contacted that day and offered the job, however I had another interview the next week so aske...

Re: Breach of contract job offer revoked-advice please

Hi Pink, It sounds like a really frustrating and upsetting situation. I don't think I can add much or offer too much help. I think as Alex has pointed out the distinction may be between the qualification and registration. I have been allowed to start my qualified post this week although my HCPC regi...

Re: NHS Support Statement AP Apps

Hi Tia, I think what they are saying is sometimes you will have to tell people complex and sensitive information that they might not want to hear - i.e. to them this information will be threatening, and they will be resistant to what you are saying and you need to take this into consideration. They ...

Re: NHS Support Statement AP Apps

Hi TiaJade, The last lot of NHS job applications I did had a limit of 1500 words in the supporting statement (granted these were for qualified posts, but I imagine AP post would be something similar) The supporting info box has a word limit normally at the bottom. But as a rule of thumb I think you ...

Re: Not sure what to do?

I would be tempted to accept the post and start. Once in post (at the point when you have to give your notice) I would explain that I want to hand my notice in so I can go travelling but would it be possible to be placed on the bank for support staff so I can come back at a later date? Or discuss op...
