This thesis comprises two volumes, representing the research and clinical elements submitted to the University of Birmingham in partial fulfillment of the degree of Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy).
The first volume is the research component and contains three papers. The first paper is a review of the literature from 1980 to the present day, which has examined intellectual, behavioural and psychological characteristics in participants with Sotos syndrome.
The second paper is an empirical study which examines the behavioural phenotype of participants with Sotos syndrome in comparison to 3 other genetic syndromes using standardised, well validated questionnaires.
The third paper summarises these in language accessible to the general public.
The second volume is the clinical component containing four Clinical Practice Reports and the abstract for an oral examination. These papers represent different aspects of work conducted during clinical placements. They include a paper which formulates from two different psychological perspectives, a service evaluation, a single case experimental design and a case study.
