Volunteeringloads of hands in the air

Hull University need volunteers

The University is looking for one actor for a clinical interviewing skills practice on their clinical psychology programme at the University of Hull.  It would involve playing a client, according to a very short script.

If anybody were interested and available for the whole day (or half, if you could not do the entire day) on 12/12/2018, that would be fantastic. It would not be paid unfortunately.

They also have the need for 3 service users, who would be reimbursed with £20.00 per hour plus travelling expenses, to feedback on the students’ interview performance on the day.

If you are interested please contact Dr Susanne Vosmer, Clinical Tutor/Lecturer, Doctorate Course in Clinical Psychology, University of Hull on s.vosmer@hull.ac.uk or 01482 463280
