Re: Should clinical psychologists be conducting more researc

I recently read an interesting article in Psypag regarding the research interests and output in clinical psychologists. What surprised me was the modal publication rate in CP practitioners is 0 (Eke et al., 2012). I thought this may be due to the training courses being less research focused before ...

Re: Clinical Vignettes

Actually, the issues with an orthodox Jew might start with whether they could shake the hand of a female therapist or make any physical contact, and whether they could feel comfortable with a therapist of the opposite gender and who was not also Frum. So I'd be curious about whether they were comfo...

Re: Clinical Vignettes

Thanks, I thought it would be useful to know how to approach them in an interview. I know they might be more detailed than they would provide at the interview. Perhaps other have other vignettes that might be more useful to discuss for interview prep? I don't have any other examples, but maybe anot...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2014 Applications

BEST OF LUCK to you I hope it works out! I'm really glad it worked out. I'm interviewing myself the second time at my first choice co...

Re: Clinical Vignettes

Hi, I'm not sure what you'd like to talk about. Is it more of a discussion on these clinical vignettes, or how to approach similar ones when you have an interview/exercise? Do you have an interview coming up? Also, I think these types of topics might go in the "Interviews" section, but I could be mi...

Re: Take it or leave it (game)

I shall leave them. I'm trying to resist carbs and I've already had a brownie bite today. I shall offer up a slot to present a keynote at a conference in front of a couple of hundred people, and the 5 hour train journey to get there. I'm not sure I could do the presentation (congrats on that by the...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2014 Applications

Laura and Blue- I cracked and ended up making an anxious phonecall to Leeds, they're still finalising the dates and times of the interview. Thank you for the info! So the answer was no, I haven't heard either. But I'm sure they will let us know soon. Either way, we are pretty lucky in some ways bec...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2014 Applications

Blue... I just keep rereading the email to check instead lol! Oh I did that a lot with my Leeds interview email. :D But I bet this is one email worth printing out and taping to your work board/wall or something :) So when the clearing house changes to 'Pending Result', it's standard practice to ref...

Re: What path to choose as a Non-UK psychology graduate?

Thank you so much for your reply, it really helped a lot! :) I think I'll apply to a Master's programme which interests me and offers supervised placement by a clinical psychologist and then see where I'll go from there! I'm glad it was of some help. The non-UK applicants don't seem to be too activ...
