I went to my first conference in June. It was a great experience, one which I hope to repeat whenever I can! Unfortunately I can’t afford to attend many of the ones I want to at the moment, but it will happen!
My first was the Liverpool Assistant Psychologist Group’s annual conference, and this year’s theme was “The Next Generation”. Aimed at anyone who is interested in pursuing clinical psychology as a career, there was a mix of people including under/postgraduates, assistant psychologists and research assistants.
It was held at Aintree race track, which was a lovely venue, especially with the weather being brilliantly sunny and therefore making everything outside look even more amazing.
The range of lectures and seminars was great, and I really came away from the day feeling like I’d learnt a lot.
My plan is to write a post about each speaker in turn. I want to be able to look at the background of each speaker, and fully discuss from my own point of view what they spoke about.
The first of these will be on Peter Kinderman, so expect this soon! If you attended the conference, please leave a comment and let me know how you found it.
If you’ve come across this blog because you’ve been directed here by my previous blog, hello! Glad you found me.
If not, hello to you too! I’ve imported all of my previous blog’s posts here, so read away. Also, take a look at my about page.
I will be blogging about my experiences along my chosen career path of clinical psychology, as well as reviews, tips, and anything else I can think of! I will try and make my posts as relevant to psychology as I can. If I end up writing about a new lip balm, well, forgive me.
I’ve not been keeping up with my writing recently, on here or in my reflective journal! I’ve still got to write a review on the LAPG conference I went to in June as well.
I am going to try and get re-motivated with everything over the next week! I’ve started a new online Coursera course as well in Social Psychology, so I need to keep up with that, I’m determined to finish this one!
I want to post about my volunteering and paid work, how it’s been going the past month, but I want to put some thought in to the post, so bear with me on that, I will try and get it up tomorrow.
In the mean time, I’m tweeting for @SalfordPsych this week, so follow if you don’t already, and engage with me on there!
