Volume I contains a literature review, empirical paper, and public domain paper. The literature review is on the subject of spousal relationships following acquired brain injury, and evaluates the evidence on demographic and other predictors of relationship stability and quality post-injury. The empirical paper is a follow-up study investigating the links between carer expectations, wellbeing, and involvement in acquired brain injury rehabilitation, and the associations between these factors and clinical outcomes for the person with the injury. The public domain paper represents an accessible summary of the empirical paper.

Volume II contains five reports of clinical work conducted on placement in adult mental health, child and adolescent, inpatient neurorehabilitation, and learning disability services. The first describes cognitive-behavioural and systemic formulation of a 60-year-old gentleman with a history of panic attacks. Secondly, an evaluation of a day service for adults with severe and enduring mental health difficulties is detailed. The third report is a single case experimental design evaluating an intervention with a seven-year-old boy showing aggressive behaviours. Then follows a case study of a 44-year-old lady with left-hemisphere stroke. The fifth report is a one-page summary of a case study of a 16-year-old boy with autism, which was presented orally.
