Volume I includes the research volume of the thesis and includes three papers that focus upon the relationship between staff, client and organisational variables with burnout in staff who work with people with intellectual disabilities. The literature review critically examines the literature related to organisational climate and burnout in staff who work within services for people with intellectual disabilities. The empirical paper examines the relationship between client (challenging behaviour), staff cognitive (fear of assault) and organisational variables (social climate) with staff burnout, and aimed to investigate which of these variables contribute most to staff burnout. These papers have been prepared for submission to the Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities. The public domain briefing paper (Appendix 1) briefly outlines the findings from the literature review and the empirical paper.

Volume II includes five clinical practice reports that were produced as part of the assessment of clinical component of the Clin.Psy.D and are entitled:
1. Clinical Practice Report 1 (Psychological Models): Kayleigh – Formulating the case of a 3 year old with behaviour and sleeping difficulties from a psychodynamic and behavioural perspective.
2. Clinical Practice Report 2 (Service Evaluation): Parents’ Experience of the Community Learning Disabilities Team – Children and Adolescents (CLDT – CA).
3. Clinical Practice Report 3 (Case Study): Using Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) with a 33 year old man presenting with low mood, self harm and PTSD symptoms.
4. Clinical Practice Report 4 (Single Case Experimental Design): Connor, a 10 year old boy with a dog phobia who was treated with systematic desensitisation.
5. Clinical Practice Report 5 (Oral Presentation): Case study of a 70 year old woman experiencing low mood.
