Expert Witness Psychologists Fees, Very informative article that took the time to explain in detail about special educational needs assessments and suggests fundamental PDF's followed by weblinks to the SEN code of conduct and a good guide for 'parents and carers' - What A great place to start! Before I noticed this article I knew nothing about assessment of special educational needs, or educational statements or the way I get help for my daughter but now I feel informed with a place to start.

How I almost lost 5,000 customers « Practice of the Practice: We're making counseling private practice awesome | To Be or Not To Be a Psychologist | Scoop.it

I became more active on counseling private practice discussions on LinkedIn a few months ago. In Pat Flynn’s e-newsletter (Smart Passive Income) he had recommended it as a way to build your expertise and following. So, I gave it a try. I found a vibrant community of counselors that were seeking ways to improve their practice.

Dr. Dobrenski asks some good questions for people thinking about entering the field of psychology to consider. I also think these are good questions for those of us who have already made the sacrificial plunge to mull over as well!

#signsofstress #dealingwithworkstress #stressedoutpsychologists #reducingjobstress  Stress management consultants can also suffer from work related stress.   There are stressed out psychologists who also fall victim to stress.    Good thing their advice on reducing job stress can work for them as well. 


Dealing with work stress is no different even if you are the one giving the advice on managing stress.    If you are a stress management counselor then you should already know the signs of stress to watch out for.    If you start seeing them then you might want to try many of the stress reduction techniques that you advise your clients to do.    If you feel you need more help then maybe you should read this article.   It has a lot of advice on how psychologists can reduce their stress.

Becoming a Therapist

Becoming a Therapist | To Be or Not To Be a Psychologist | Scoop.it
This book provides students and novice clinicians with nuts-and-bolts advice about the process of doing therapy, starting with the first contact with a new patient. Suzanne Bender, at the time a junior clinician, and Edward Messner, a seasoned practitioner and supervisor, provide a unique, combined perspective on how therapy is conducted, what works and what doesn't work in treatment, and how to take care of oneself as a clinician. Organized around the treatment of one fictitious patient, with other case examples brought in as needed, the book speaks directly to the questions, concerns, and insecurities that beginning therapists typically face. Written with candor and empathy, it offers authoritative guidance for understanding and resolving common clinical dilemmas.
Nancy Cope's insight:

This is a good practical book for all therapists and in particular the novice who is experiencing understandable jitters!
