Clinical Psychology end of placement posters

Dr Anjula Gupta
Clinical Tutor

The Clinical Psychology Programme celebrated the end of the first placement for the fourth years yesterday by holding a poster presentation event in the Nidd Building. The Community Psychology placement is the only placement that is provided by third sector services in Hull. The placement period is six weeks and trainees are on placement for three days a week. During this six weeks the trainees also receive Community and Critical psychology teaching and are involved in weekly reflective practice groups and individual supervision sessions. The aim of the placement and these forums is to support the development of skills and knowledge in the theory base of Community and Critical Psychology, reflective practice skills, personal and professional development.
Trainees were required to design a poster that shared their reflections on and experiences of the placement and to think about this from a Community Psychology perspective. Placement mentors, Faculty colleagues and colleagues from the Psychology programme joined the trainees and Clinical Psychology Programme course team at the poster presentation. The event was vibrant, lively and thought provoking and brought together key partners that we have developed with communities in Hull over the last three years. It was an enjoyable day and a fitting end to the placement. Many thanks to our placement providers and all the work done by the trainees on some spectacular posters.

Season's Greetings

Good news on scholarships for the faculty

Dear Colleagues

I am writing to announce the results of this year’s University-funded PhD scholarship competition. Thank you for your patience in waiting slightly longer than usual for the outcomes to be communicated to Faculties.

As you will know,  the allocation process changed this year, in favour of a new bidding procedure, with no prior allocations to Faculties. It was a tough competition, with some excellent submissions, and inevitably some areas fared better than others.  I am pleased to say that the Faculty of  Health and Social Care was awarded 3x PhD scholarships and one PDRA (band 7) for the cluster PoWER 360: Programme for Women Achieving Excellence in Research.  Congratulations to everyone involved!
I should be grateful if you could arrange for this news to be disseminated to the successful bidders.  I would be happy to feed back to those whose bids were unsuccessful on this occasion.

Each of these studentships will need to be ready for advertising shortly. If they have not been already, each project should be carefully defined, so that applicants have a clear sense of what the studentship entails. We are hoping to be able to advertise before the Christmas break. Colleagues should liaise with Dr Nigel Shaw in the Graduate School about this process.

Please let me know if you have any queries about any part of this process.

All good wishes,

Valerie Sanders
Graduate School
