As mentioned on Thursday we want to thank all those people who have completed the NSS survey for Final Year undergraduate students. We would also much appreciate if others who have not completed it could do so by the end of this term. Click for further details..
I have been asked to forward this request from a counsellor at Evesham and District Mental Health Support Services (EDMHSS) who is looking for participants for a research project on the impact of suicide on counsellors....
This will be discussed in class this week but I (Phil) did a response to this a few days ago, though there is still time to do further responses if you want to (the consultation closes Friday 22nd February 2019 and you should have received an email about this). I wanted to share the key points from my response to this consultation document produced jointly by BACP, UKCP and BPC.
The NSS for Final Year undergraduate students has opened this week and we'd like to encourage you to complete this. It only takes about 10 minutes and helps us to get feedback about the course and any aspects which we could improve on. Please reflect on your overall experience of the whole course, not just this year.
Jackie, Richard and Phil have moved (as has the whole team) to CEDAR Building on Westwood campus ..... (its at the end of car park 14), and are on the ground floor in rooms 047(which Richard is based in on a Thursday), 048 (Jackie's room) and 049 (Phil's room). We also have room 051 which we can use for tutorials and/or as a resource room (tutorials can also happen in CLL where easier).
The move is part of a reorganisation of CLL and although it means we are a few minutes walk further away from the teaching rooms, this gives us more space to play with and even possible extra teaching space options in CEDAR.
Do come over and have a look when you have a moment!
