Lancaster DClinPsy selections processes highlighted as good practice in BPS guidance
Public participation in all aspects of programme activity is a core value for the Lancaster DClinPsy Programme. Our approach to involvement in selections has been highlighted as an example of good practice in the recently updated British Psychological Society guidance on training and consolidation of clinical practice in relation to adults with intellectual disabilities.
Lancashire Emotional Health in Schools and Colleges team funding extended to July 2022
The Lancashire Emotional Health in Schools and Colleges team offers training and support to staff from all primary and secondary schools and colleges in Lancashire on a range of topics relating to children's mental health. The team is based at Lancaster University within the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme, and has been funded by Lancashire County Council since 2014.
‘Decolonising the Curriculum: Promoting Cultural Humility’: a trainee-developed tool
Last year five 2nd year trainees were tasked with considering how the programme could decolonise our curriculum as part of their Service Improvement Poster Presentation (SIPP) assignment, asking trainees to develop a strategy for how the programme can decolonise the curriculum, with the aim of producing some guidelines or a ‘roadmap’ of how we can approach this.
Lancaster DClinPsy Anti-Racism stance
Following events within the training community, the profession, the murder of George Floyd and the work of the Black Lives Matter movement, the last 12 months have seen the Lancaster DClinPsy begin to focus on addressing structural, and individual, experiences of racism within the programme and clinical psychology as a profession. We acknowledge this work is overdue, and we recognise the work of many people who have been highlighting institutional racism for many, many years.
Anti-Racism Stakeholder Consultation
On 25th November, following a similar trainee consultation event in September, stakeholders in the programme came together online to share ideas and discuss anti-racist practice. Stakeholders included supervisors, markers, teachers, selectors, experts by experience, trainees and staff, and we were joined by Dr Nargis Islam, Senior Lecturer and Clinical Tutor, from UEL.
Graduation congratulations and celebrations
The programme would like to extend its heartfelt congratulations to all of our trainees who graduated at Lancaster this week. We were also delighted to see so many people at our post-graduation celebration and unveiling of the artwork created in memory of Dr Julie Davies. We were delighted to host Julie's family who collected her doctorate during the graduation ceremony and shared some moving words with us all.
