Some of our Clinical Trainees reflect on the experience of difference and diversity in Clinical Psychology Training.
Diversity and representativeness are something that gets talked about quite a bit in NHS professions, not least in our own field of Clinical Psychology. Reflecting the variety of life, and of the people we are there to serve, is not something we are always brilliant at. It’s a great pleasure on this occasion to offer a piece produced by some of our clinical psychology trainees talking about these issues. Actually, all the trainees featured here qualified in September 2019 but, a few months before they left the recorded a discussion about diversity, representativeness and the experience of difference during their training. Race, culture, gender, nationality and disability all formed part of their conversation. So, over to Lauren Bryan, Naomi Fairweather, Gina Harwood and Julian Himmerich.
