    Really like the concept of narrative therapy in the context of brain injuries.

    The idea that, while someone may have a problem, the problem also has them. In the case of a brain injury for example, it means that its residual effects can effectively take over their lives. Externalising this, seeing it as "a thief", "an intruder" etc means that it can be confronted and perhaps tackled.

    The Wavefunction AliRizzo thoughts?
    So therapy for curing physical injures? Are you suggesting that it can indeed, physically help the healing process, or just help the individual come over a mental barrier?

    On the topic of the brain, I was reading a paper about Fluoride possibly being responsible for Alzheimer's, due to it allowing aluminium to reach the brain. Apparently it's quite a controversial topic, do you have any knowledge on it? Seems like an interesting debate.

    Should have made it clear, not physical injuries following a brain injury.. more of the hidden injuries. So executive dysfunction, personality change, impulsiveness etc. Coping with things like that as a family member is so hard - so in family therapy, a psychologist might use narrative therapy and describe the brain injury as something external.. and speak about ways to tackle (essentially cope) it.

    I haven't, no.. it does seem interesting though. There was a massive thing about the whooping cough vaccine being linked with brain damage, not sure if you remember. I do think they'll eventually need to do studies on it.. and to get definitive answers it'll take decades - which is mental because if true, **** knows how many people will be effected by it

    Sounds interesting, where can I read more about it? Nothing relevant came up on google.
    Nah, its like really dug up research. It's quite an old study tbh

    Just had my telephone interview. Most of the questions I prepared for came up so I knew what to say. There was one question that I didn't prepare for but it was easy enough to answer. I was really nervous throughout and I know my voice sounded shaky. Hopefully I've done enough to get through to the next stage. 😁

    Haha! I was going to say, I was somewhat sceptical of talking curing a physical injury. Yeah, what you've described sounds interesting, is it practiced in today's medicine/therapy?

    I too should've added something; the fluoride thing was controversial because they put fluoride in tap water.
    I think that's the case with most things similar to that, all it takes is one study saying X causes Y and people jump on the band wagon, when in reality there is no conclusive evidence saying that it is true. I think that's one of the main problems with people in today's society, they'll believe anything they read without doing their own research and coming to their own conclusions.

    Only some clinical psychologists do.. should be practiced more imo.

    Idk I doubt thats true, because if that was the case then there would be a lot of brain injuries.. and there really aren't.

    Yeah evidence-based practice is such an unknown area. Even for the published stuff out there, I'd say a massive number.. well over half is ********.

    When I used to look at a paper, I'd read the abstract, the intro, the results and the discussion. I now realise that the study is only good when the methods section is valid - and there is so much scope to **** that up :lol:

    Can spend so long reading a paper, and one thing would just make the whole thing invalid.

    I'd rather get a 61 on an essay that I did the night before than 65 on an essay that I put a good few days/weeks into. All about expectations and satisfaction.
