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

1. So happy to have an interview for Oxford :). 2. Gutted for people who have had bad news today, especially some of the lovely people I met at the PD day last week. Everyone was so impressive and really deserve some interviews. 3. This means I really need to start doing some prep :shock: . 4. Going...

Re: Managing application anxiety

I thought getting one 'green' would chill me out. Not so. One hit and I'm addicted to 'green'...I need more! :alien:

Not to mention the anxiety of now actually having to prepare for an interview...

Re: Clinical Psychology: The Two Things

I read this article too and it got me thinking! I came up with...

1. Use evidence to help reduce distress.
2. If there is no evidence, create some!

Re: first job app: who to give as references!!

For volunteer jobs they probably just want to verify basic things like your reliability, time-keeping etc, so it wouldn't necessarily have to be a psychology-related reference- have you ever done any kind of part-time job? Or, if you've recently graduated or you're currently at uni, then as the last...

Re: Shall I run a personal development day?

Thanks so much for today Miriam! Yes, it was great to meet you and others from the forum- even though it was technically a room full of strangers it felt like a very safe space to say what you were thinking and get some helpful feedback. I've definitely come away with more confidence in how much I d...

Re: Shall I run a personal development day?

I also live near enough to commute in on Monday, but might come and join you tomorrow night- I'll be passing MK anyway en route home from visiting family. What time are you planning on meeting up? I'll PM you Will!

Good thread.

Re: LIFT model of primary care

That was my main argument, Ruthie. Although I've only been given 500 words to play with. Not sure why I've been asked to write about it rather than talk about it in the interview. That might still happen I suppose. Probably the purpose of asking you to write about it instead (and so briefly!) is to...

Re: Developing an app for anxiety

...it seems to me that addressing safety behaviours is something that needs to be therapist supported; partly because they need careful identification and understanding through joint assessment but mostly because they have such an important if dysfunctional role in psychic defense.

Re: Developing an app for anxiety

Safety behaviours: anything that the individual believes will stop the feared event from happening is a safety behaviour. so "if I do my breathing exercises when I feel a panic attack starting, that will prevent me from passing out". That means that the person uses the breathing to preven...

Re: Developing an app for anxiety

The first thing that sprang to my IAPT-trained mind on reading this is: someone with anxiety + something they carry around with them all the time that helps them manage their anxiety = a safety behaviour waiting to happen! So I'd try to steer away from anything to do with breathing/relaxating techni...
