Abstract

This thesis consists of two volumes submitted towards the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Volume I comprises three research chapters. The first presents a metasynthesis of fifteen studies of women's experiences of depression. Eight themes and an underlying concept, 'The Conflicted Self, reflect the complexity of depression for women. The second is an empirical research project which explored women's experiences of relationships during recovery from depression. Analysis identified the women were integrated within relationships which could negatively and positively impact upon their depression and recovery. The third is a public dissemination document of these chapters. Volume II comprises five clinical practice reports. The first presents two formulations of James, a 26 year-old man experiencing a number of difficulties related to underlying low self-esteem. The second presents an audit of the care provided by a mental health service to people with psychosis. The third presents a single-case experimental design of Jasminder, a 10 year-old non-verbal girl with ASD displaying self-injurious behaviour. The fourth presents a case study of Emily, a 16 year-old girl experiencing anxiety, low mood, self- harm, and OCD. The fifth presents an abstract of an oral presentation of Jane, a 28 year-old woman experiencing difficulties related to underlying emotional instability.
