Abstract

The thesis comprises of both research and clinical components and is submitted as partial fulfilment of a doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology. Volume I, the research component, includes a literature review, an empirical paper and a public domain paper. The systematic literature review investigates evidence investigating parents’ with Learning Disabilities psychological wellbeing and social support. The empirical paper explores the journey of parenthood from the perspective of parents with Learning Disabilities. Finally, the public domain paper provides a summary of the empirical paper. Volume II, the clinical component, includes clinical practice reports conducted within clinical placements from child, learning disabilities, adult and older adult specialties. The first report contains an attachment and systemic formulation of a young girl and her family. The second report is a small scale service related project investigating the usefulness of an opt-in procedure and reasons for non-attendance in a STAR clinic in a child and family service. The third report is a single case experimental design with a young man with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. The fourth is a case study of a woman seen in a systemic service experiencing low mood. Finally an abstract is provided for a clinical presentation about an older man with Alzheimer’s disease who refused to wash.
