Volume I consists of three chapters. The first chapter is a systematic review exploring the factors associated with coercion in those who are involuntarily admitted to hospital. Those with psychosis, aggression and poor global functioning were some of the factors associated with a higher likelihood of experiencing coercion. The second chapter outlines an empirical research study exploring the experience of being detained under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act (1983, 2007) using Critical Incident Technique (Flanagan 1954, Butterfield, Borgen Maglio & Edmunson, 2009). The importance of meaningful human relationships was found to underpin many of the critical incidents. The third and final chapter is a public domain briefing document which provides a concise and accessible summary of both the systematic review and the empirical research study.
Volume II consists of five chapters, each containing a Clinical Practice Report (CPR). The first report outlines the details of a 14 year old girl with anxiety formulated using cognitive-behavioural and systemic models. The second report presents a service evaluation of a dialectical behaviour therapy group provided by a CAMHS service. The third report outlines the case study of a 72 year old woman with a fear of falling, formulated using a cognitive-behavioural approach. The fourth report documents a single case experimental design, evaluating the efficacy of a cognitive-behavioural therapy for psychosis. The fifth chapter is the abstract of an oral presentation made outlining the use of cognitive analytic therapy with a 32 year old male.
