Abstract

This thesis, in two volumes, forms part of a three year Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Birmingham.
Volume one contains a systematic review, an empirical paper and an executive summary. Paper one is a systematic review of research investigating factors that may contribute to the development of aggression in dementia. There was support for a complex interaction of factors, however, high quality, theory driven research is limited. Paper two is a qualitative study that explores spousal carers' perspectives on aggression in dementia within the context of their relationship. The data was analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA). Themes emerging from the data relate to how spousal carers understood, and responded to the aggression. Template Analysis (TA) was used to reveal the interplay between aggression and aspects of relationship continuity. Paper three, is an executive summary that serves as a briefing paper for the public domain.
Volume two contains five clinical practice reports (CPR's).
