Abstract

The thesis consists of two volumes:

Volume I
This volume comprises three chapters. The first chapter is a literature review exploring the impact of working with clients diagnosed with BPD on therapists. The second chapter is the empirical paper, exploring writing online, specifically relating to people who blog about their mental health. The third chapter is the public domain briefing.

Volume II
Five Clinical Practice Reports (CPRs) are presented in this volume. The first report focuses on ‘Psychological Models’, formulating the experiences of Rose from both a Cognitive Behavioural, and a Systemic, perspective.
The second report details a small scale service evaluation assessing how four Community Mental Health Teams (CMHTs) meet the needs of local black and ethnic minority (BME) populations. The third report details the case study of Rita, a 78 year old client detained under section 3 of the Mental Health Act. The report focuses on the assessment, formulation, and intervention regarding physical aggression (‘behaviour that challenges others’). The fourth report outlines the case of Alexa and her son, Callum, attending a child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) for support with tics. The intervention is evaluated as a single case experimental design. The fifth report is an abstract for a verbal case study presentation. The abstract introduces Anna, a 71 year old lady referred for psychoanalytic psychotherapy for support with past trauma.
