Re: THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT CLINPSY

Congratulations! There's nothing selfish about giving yourself credit for an excellent achievement! Well done on being offered the position you both want and have worked hard for. Life has a habit of taking us down paths we don't always expect, but these paths often lead to something great and life ...

Re: Struggling to decide between conversion masters

Go for the course you think will suit you best, which sounds like Sussex from what you've said. University reputation really does not matter. What does matter is the grade you get, which is likely to be better if you choose a course that suits you. If you think you will be happiest at Sussex, go for...

Re: Unsuccessful application? Want a post-mortem of your form?

Miriam, if you are snowed under would you/others be willing for someone else to review some of the forms? I would be happy to do so provided people still make the donation to your charity. If it's not appropriate that's fine, but just thought it would ease the pressure on you.

Re: BSc vs MSc vs PGDip

I think, realistically, you need to decide between the BSc and the MSc. There are some Clinical courses that do not accept PGDips and you would definitely be limiting future options if you pursued this route. Either a BSc or an MSc would be acceptable (especially in light of you having a 1st in your...

Re: Essex interview feedback 2019

My issue is not people wanting feedback. I'm alll for that and agree wholeheartedly that a "them and us" scenario is unhelpful and unhealthy. But I DO have an issue with people demanding that feedback on their own terms, in their own format, at a time that suits only them. If that sounds defensive m...

Re: Essex interview feedback 2019

So these abusive and unethical clinicians who give their time freely and without reward, whilst probably still having to fulfill their quota of face-to-face contacts during the interview period, have supervision commitments, may well have teaching commitments, admin commitments, might have to contac...

Re: Choosing a course by location

I chose based on location (didn't want to live away from hubby who was deep in his own PhD at the time so couldn't relocate) andI LOVED my training. Even though the course ethos didn't always exactly chime with mine, I saw that as an opportunity to explore my approach to work and actively sought dif...

Re: Open University Psychology degree.

If you're referring to the wiki, I think you've misread it. At the top of it, Miriam clearly states that the thoughts below are those of 2 different forum members, not herself. Not wishing to speak for Miriam (so apologies if it seems like I am) but that was certainly my reading of that post.

Re: Sample of cover letter

It could be your cover letter, but, without meaning to sound harsh, I think you might need to address a couple of more fundamental issues. First, you need to rethink how you describe the people you have been working with. Your description of "different populations including ASD, LD...etc" makes no r...

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

Sorry to hear about your daughter, Miriam. That must have been very tough for all of you. I hope she's bouncing around again soon.
1 - 5) SO, SO thankful my husband's family have not been affected by the horrendous typhoon in Jspan. My heart goes out to any and all who have suffered.

Re: Frustrated that my career is on hold

I'd echo what Miriam says about there being no guarantees about any of this. As I've said before, children have a habit of coming when they come! My husband and I thought we'd got it sussed - have babies early whilst he was establishing his career then I'd train when they'd started school and he cou...

Re: After finishing my psychology degree, should I do a masters or get work experience?

To be honest, I wouldn't worry about such things at this stage. Given you still have another year of your degree to go, so at this stage I would strongly recommend you focus on getting the best grade possible in your degree. A good undergrad grade makes the next stage easier, so focus on that, on th...
