ClinPsy forum wants you!

Post by maven » Fri Sep 28, 2018 1:51 am

We need some volunteers to check and update the wiki entries, and to help us finish the content for the new issue of Aspire. There might also be the option to help out with our research, to explore income generation options for the site, or to review a book. So there are lots of opportunities to help make this site better and add something to your CV.

If this appeals to you, and you have some time and energy to contribute to our team, please get in touch with Miriam :)

Maven- have almost finished an updated version of week in life of LI IAPT worker do you want me to post it in this thread as a quote to copy and paste or would you prefer me to do something different with it?
Also wondering if the title could be amended to include PWP as that may be the term people search for?

Feel free to either paste it here, or on the wiki concerned. The admins normally check for new posts since their last visit, and will see it either way. And I think the change in title is a good suggestion :)
