Volume I contains the research component of the thesis; this consists of a literature review, an empirical paper and an executive summary. The first paper presents a qualitative meta-synthesis on the psychosocial impact of a sexually transmitted disease at the individual level. The second, which is the empirical paper, uses quantitative methods to explore the relationship between STD related stigma, shame, perceived risk and sexual behaviour in adolescents. Volume II contains five clinical practice reports (CPRs) completed throughout the course. CPR1 presents the formulation of an 8 year old girl with separation anxiety from cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic perspectives. CPR2 is a service evaluation of health visitors views of a consultation service provided by CAMHS staff. CPR3 presents a single case experimental design of a behavioural intervention with a 28 year old male displaying challenging behavior following a severe traumatic brain injury. CPR4 presents a case study of a 54 year old woman with chronic pain and longstanding depressions. CPR5 is represented in the form of an abstract outlining the case of a 19 year old girl who had experienced a traumatic bereavement.
