www.ClinPsy.org.uk - Registration

The registration process has three stages. First, you agree the terms and conditions given below, and fill out your registration form. Then you need to validate the email address you used by clicking on the email we send out. The volunteers who run the site will then manually check the registrations about once a week, activating those that are not associated with spam or banned users. Note: If you originate in a country that is associated with spammers, such as China, Russia, Belarus or Indonesia your application will be refused unless you have previously contacted us by email at clinpsyforum@gmail.com - this is the email address to contact us, and will be checked by our volunteers about once a week. Please be patient and allow two weeks for your registration to be activated (it may take longer over holiday periods or if your registration is from outside the UK). We do not respond to queries on facebook or twitter about forum registrations.
