Abstract

This thesis consisting of two volumes is submitted to the University of Birmingham towards the degree of Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.

Volume I comprises of three research chapters. The first presents a meta-ethnographic review of the literature exploring how therapists experience working with trauma survivors. The second chapter is an empirical research study exploring how mental health nurses working in secure care make sense of their experience of working with trauma. The third chapter is a public dissemination document which provides an accessible overview of the review and empirical chapters.

Volume II comprises of five clinical practice reports. The first presents the case of Albert1, a 58-year-old man who had engaged in fire-setting. This was formulated from Cognitive-Behavioural and Psychodynamic perspectives. The second presents an evaluation of nurse’s experience of a training package delivered in secure care. The third presents a single-case experimental design evaluating the effectiveness of needs-led interventions informed by the Newcastle model. Interventions were implemented for Rose, a 68-year-old lady who was presenting with behaviour that challenges in the context of Alzheimer’s Disease. The fourth presents a case study for Jack, a 32-year-old man who was presenting with self-harm. Interventions focused on Cognitive-Behavioural and Acceptance-based techniques. The fifth presents an abstract of an oral presentation about utilising a behavioural approach to support George, a 7-year-old boy who was presenting with selective mutism.
