I found this blog post very useful and would definitely recommend giving it a read if you are interested in this area of work. Much of what it talks about very much reminds me of my own experiences as an Assistant Psychologist last year. I have just begun a new role as an AP and plan to write a blog post about my experiences of both this new role and previous roles within the next few weeks. If you would like to see what my experience has been please find a link to my Linkedin at the bottom of this page. Please also feel free to ask me any questions regarding this subject.

Within this post we aim to explore the 4 things every new Assistant Psychologists should know before they begin this chapter of their lives. Hopefully you pick up some tips that will help you develop into the clinician we know you’re capable of being.
