A report into the Politicisation of Clinical Psychology Training Courses

I am very pleased to have contributed to a report examining the extent to which UK clinical psychology training courses have been taken over by political ideology. Unfortunately, the news isn’t good. We found that all courses have adopted a politicised stance in their teaching of clinical psychology – an approach that is exceptionally dangerous for both training and patient care.

Our report has been mentioned in The Critic, Cieo, Critical Therapy Antidote and Psychreg.

The British Psychological Society

For any of you that have scoured my website, you may have seen a statement saying ‘Kirsty is qualified to be a member of the British Psychological Society’ (The BPS). The reason I have this statement is that I know that some believe that membership of a professional body is important. For those people, please rest assured that I have the relevant qualifications (as evidenced by the fact that I have been a member on and off for a couple of decades). However, I have chosen to no longer associate with the organisation – despite the fact that it is our accrediting body. The reasons for this decision are detailed here, and I will very happily discuss them further with anyone who wishes to engage.
