*Trainee Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner Example Interview Questions*

Here’s a helping hand….. 👋

When you only have a week or less to prep for an interview, it can be really stressful.

You’re maybe thinking: ‘where do I even start?’, ‘what shall I research?’, ‘what questions should I prepare for?’

Something that I found helpful to alleviate stress, is to note down all the questions that you can remember from previous interviews. This way, you can improve your answers for the next interview. This also helps because the same questions will probably crop up as you interview for different services/ NHS trusts.

Here are some example questions that you could be asked:

1) What does a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) do?

2) What’s skills do you have that sets you apart from others?

3) What do you do if a client stops taking their medication?

4) What are the pros and cons of targets in IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) and how have you met targets in your jobs roles?

5) What difficulties may you have when running a psychoeducational workshop?

6) A question regarding risk. For example, someone has thoughts/plans to end their life, what would you do?

7) What is the stepped care model, why is it important and where do PWP’s fit into the model?

8) Why was IAPT created?

Please see this link to Nidah’s LinkedIN post for other questions and advice. Please be mindful that other questions can also come up and questions are different for different universities and different NHS trusts.

I hope you found this article helpful. Please send us any questions via Instagram or Twitter.
