Abstract

This thesis is submitted in part fulfilment for the degree of Doctor of Clinical Psychology (ClinPsychD) at the University of Birmingham. It contains both the research component and five clinical practice reports of clinical work that was undertaken during the three years of the course. Volume One of the thesis contains three papers. The literature review examines evidence on interventions for the rehabilitation of executive functioning. It has been written with the intention to submit to the journal: Neuropsychological Rehabilitation. The empirical study is the second paper. This examines the impact of verbal and visual/verbal feedback on awareness of errors and performance on a planning task. This has been written with the intention to submit to the journal: Neuropsychological Rehabilitation. The third paper is the public domain briefing paper which gives an overview of the literature review and empirical paper. Volume Two contains five clinical practice reports. The first report describes a 31year-old man with depression, formulated from a cognitive and psychodynamic framework. The second report is a small-scale service related project which evaluates the process of setting up a personality disorder service by a local PCT. The third is a single-case experimental design, with a man with severe learning disabilities, displaying agitated behaviour. The fourth is a case study report of a psychological intervention with a woman experiencing loss, adjustment and relationship difficulties. The final report is the abstract from an oral presentation of a small-scale service related project on a community psychology child placement.
