This thesis is submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctorate of Clinical Psychology (ClinPsyD) at the University of Birmingham. Volume I contains a systematic literature review, empirical paper, and public domain briefing document. The aim of the systematic literature review was to answer the question ‘do sleep problems contribute to alcohol use among adolescents?’ The empirical paper investigated the effect of auditory cueing during wakefulness in a sample of typically developing young adults. The public domain debriefing paper summarises the main findings of the literature review and the empirical paper. Volume II contains five clinical practice reports (CPRs). CPR I describes a 38-year-old man who presents with low mood and anxiety, formulated from a cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic perspective. CPR II presents an evaluation of service users’ experience of a chronic pain department. CPR III presents a single-case experimental design, which considers the case of a 3-year-old girl with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome presenting with sleep difficulties. CPR IV describes a case study of a 15-year-old boy with an adjustment disorder presenting with low mood and suicidal ideation. CPR V is a summary of the processes involved in facilitating a staff support group in an older adults inpatient unit.
