Re: Everyone's a little bit crazy (normalising thread)

This is a great thread- well resurrected, Gilly. I identify with a lot of things people have already said about checking: that I haven't run over cyclists; that I locked the door/windows; that I set the alarm clock(s!); turned off the cooker/straighters...I'm a big checker :oops:. Sometimes after se...

Re: Going along with delusional thoughts

I think that depends on exactly what you mean by 'going along' with the thoughts? There is a difference between discussing delusional thoughts/psychotic experiences as real experiences that the client is having, and discussing them as though the content itself is real (which could be seen as decepti...

Re: Opinions on the IAPT scheme?

From what I understand, to become a HIW, you need to have a core profession and there are loads of clinical psychologists and so on training to become HIW. I guess that leaves me wondering what the LIW are supposed to do to progress or where they can go, given that being a LIW is, in some cases, an...

Re: Trainee section?

Here are my thoughts having read through this thread. As someone who has just been offered a place, I think I can look at this issue from the perspective of a soon-to-be trainee, as well as someone pursuing training (if I cast my mind back a week!). I don't like the idea of a closed trainee section....

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

1. Why did it not occur to me that all the shops would be shut on Easter Sunday? :roll: 2. At least the freezer is well stocked...slight lack of fresh stuff, but I'm sure I'll survive. 3. Finally upgraded and joined the smartphone generation. Don't quite know what to do with it, but it's shiny! (Whe...

Re: Tips for telephone work

Hi Molly, In the service I worked for, we had limited clinical space so it was mostly telephone work with the odd face-to face available- each PWP was left to decide how/when they wanted to use their face-to-face slots. What I found worked well was to do assessments by telephone (as I often might be...
