Volume I comprises of three papers. The first paper is a systematic critical review of the current literature regarding psychosocial interventions for individuals who are caregiving for a family member with dementia. The second paper presents a quantitative small-scale research study examining the relationship between spousal caregivers‘ perceptions of the relationship and their experience of caregiving. The final paper of this volume is an executive summary of the main research findings. Volume II comprises of five clinical practice reports based upon the clinical work carried out during placements in the NHS as a Clinical Psychologist in Training. The first report presents the case of ‘Simon’ who was experiencing obsessive compulsive symptoms. Simon‘s difficulties were formulated from two psychological models; cognitive and systemic. The second report is a service evaluation of the Choice and Partnership Approach within a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. The third report is a single case experimental design investigating the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for a 74 year old lady experiencing depression and suicidal ideation and intent. The fourth report is a case study of the work carried out with ‘Satbir’ a young person with Autism engaging in self-injurious behaviours. The fifth report presented here is in the form of an abstract, and describes a presentation carried out for the case study of ‘Sarah‘ who was experiencing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
