Abstract

This thesis is submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctorate of Forensic Clinical Psychology at the University of Birmingham. The thesis consists of two volumes.
Volume 1
This volume consists of three chapters. The first chapter is a literature review examining whether there is a link between psychopathy and self-harm. The second chapter is a quantitative study investigating whether scores on the HCR-20 and FAM risk assessment tools predict frequency of self-harm in females within a secure psychiatric hospital. The third chapter comprises a public domain briefing document which provides a plain language summary of the literature review and empirical paper.
Volume 2
This volume consists of five Forensic Clinical Practice Reports (FCPRs). The first details the case of a 63-year-old man with depression and paranoid schizophrenia, formulated from both cognitive and psychodynamic perspectives. The second is a service evaluation examining whether scores on the HCR-20 and HoNOS decrease over time for patients detained within a secure psychiatric hospital, and whether individuals’ scores on these measures reflect the level of security in which they reside. The third FCPR documents the case of a 34-year-old man experiencing offence-related anxiety, shame and depression. The fourth FCPR is a single-case experimental design investigating the effectiveness of a trauma-focussed cognitive-behavioural intervention for offence-related PTSD. The fifth FCPR is an abstract of an oral case presentation of a 14-year-old girl experiencing school anxiety. Pseudonyms have been used throughout to ensure anonymity.
