This thesis submitted for the degree of doctor of Clinical Psychology comprises of two volumes. Volume I is the research component of the thesis and consists of the literature review, empirical paper and public dissemination document. The literature review examined childhood brain injury and the family, including the impact the family (e.g. functioning) has on a child with a brain injury and vice versa. The empirical paper describes a research project examining how mothers conceptualise their child’s identity following a brain injury. Volume II is the clinical component of the thesis and consists of five clinical practice reports (CPR). The first CPR presents the case of a 13 year old girl with weight management difficulties formulated from a cognitive and systemic perspective. The second CPR describes a small-scale service-related research project, which examined the views of 12 to 18 year olds attending child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS). The third CPR is a single case experimental design evaluating a mindfulness-based intervention with a sixty year old man with anxiety and panic attacks. The fourth CPR is a case study of a 33 year old male with risk and challenging behaviour in an inpatient setting. The final CPR is an abstract summarising a presentation of a neuropsychological case study.
