Abstract

This thesis comprises of a research volume and a clinical volume. The research volume consists of three components. The first component is a literature review of the management of inappropriate sexual behaviour in people with acquired brain injuries. The main conclusion was that further research is needed with methodologically sound studies to inform clinical practice. The second component is an empirical study exploring the behavioural phenotype of Pitt-Hopkins Syndrome. Individuals with Pitt-Hopkins were found to have significantly lower mood and interest and pleasure than the comparison group, with most of the sample meeting the cut off for ASD. No significant differences were found between groups on parental reports of wellbeing, strain and positive gain. The final component is a public dissemination document which summarises the research volume for the general public.

The clinical volume consists of five Clinical Practice Reports (CPR). CPR 1 presents a CBT and Systemic formulation. CPR 2 is a service evaluation of outcome measures in a CAMHS service. CPR 3 is a single case experimental study of a DBT intervention. CPR 4 is a case study outlining an attachment focused intervention. The final CPR is an abstract of an oral presentation of an ACT intervention.
