  1. I don't think this can be true. We won't be seeing another manual for a very long time I suspect but there will always be revision to be made given the research that has taken place since the publishing of the previous one. http://www.apa.org/monitor/2013/04/dsm.aspx
  2. No point finding something else and then leaving that one too when I finally come across something you want to do. My advice is to look for other jobs whilst you are currently employed and do some brushing up of skills on the side on evening and weekends in areas you want to pursue so when the time does come along you haven't been out of touch with your interests for too long to not know what is what.
  3. Just discovered it originated from India!
  4. Focus on what you want to do rather than where. Make sure you do well because ultimately employers are looking for able students.
  5. Not all of us are affiliated with institutions that have subscriptions to certain journals, would it be possible to set up a thread on the site to put in requests? What do people think?
  6. I agree with this. Back when I was an UG, people went into psychology either because they were 'interested in the brain', or they didn't have much else interest in anything else. There were also those who were interested in mental health which had their eye on CP.
  7. I agree. We're living through a technological revolution. Our children and grandchildren may ask us many decades from now how it was like to grow up during these years where there has been a spike in technology companies, social media and the way we do things as a civilization. I'm too far into my career to change now, but I would just ask you to do your research and make sure you have a genuine interest in what ever you might go into
  8. I just picked up a copy of the DSM 5. I've received it but is it just my copy, or are the pages tissue like thin? The page numbers are also not corresponding with the contents. Is anyone else notice that on their copy, if anyone owns a copy?
  9. Hi All, Can anyone recommend any courses for neurobiology? It's my first time using it and I'm not too sure what I should be looking for!
  10. Any chance you can elaborate on this thought?
  11. I usually take the short ones. They last maybe 4-6 weeks. The motivation really has to come from within.
  12. It just dawned on me this evening. When ever I used to ask my fellow students, it was more often than not an intention to go into clinical psychology. I couldn't understand it! Yes, it's interesting, but psychology is so broad and wide. These answers are often given before the end of the degree to, so some people haven't seen what psychology has to offer!

  14. Those are all valid points, but doesn't the level or degree of narcissism fluctuate depending on situations? Do you think this particular trait is one that is heavily tied to making us human? It's certainly a complementary trait given the others that exist, but in moderation it does no harm. I found some interesting journal articles on this, if you're interested in reading about narcissism from a scientific point of view. 1-s2.0-S0092656602005056-main.pdf 1468-2389.00199.pdf journal.pone.0103469.pdf 1-s2.0-S1359178900000124-main.pdf Bushman & Baumeister (1998).pdf Pers Soc Psychol Bull-2002-Campbell-358-68.pdf
