We are excited to share news of the publication of a new book - Professional Issues in Clinical Psychology: Developing a Professional Identity through Training and Beyond, edited by Will Curvis, clinical tutor on the DClinPsy at Lancaster. The book features contributions from a range of current trainees and recent alumni of the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme at Lancaster University, with a foreword by Richard Slinger.
Professional Issues in Clinical Psychology: Developing a Professional Identity through Training and Beyond offers insights from a range of trainee, recently qualified and experienced clinical psychologists as they reflect on the process of developing their professional identity through consideration of dilemmas and issues they experienced through clinical psychology training.
Reflecting the breadth of the profession and the range of services in which clinical psychologists work, the chapters highlight the different types of roles that clinical psychologists are expected to undertake throughout training and post-qualification. The book provides practical clinical recommendations that can be applied in work settings in line with contemporary research, policy and guidance, as well as personal reflections from the authors on how managing professional issues has shaped their practice as a developing clinical psychologist.Back to News
