Volume I comprises three papers. The first paper is a systematic review of the literature examining burnout in direct care staff working with people with intellectual disabilities. The second paper presents a quantitative research study exploring the relationship between work demands and staff burnout and whether role-identity or self-determination mediate this relationship. The final paper is a public domain briefing document which provides an accessible summary of the empirical paper. Volume II comprises five clinical practice reports. The first report presents a cognitive-behavioural and psych-dynamic formulation for a 16-year-old girl with social anxiety. The second report is a case study describing a cognitive-behavioural intervention undertaken with a 54-year-old gentleman with obsessive compulsive disorder. The third report is a single-case research design describing a behavioural intervention for a 45-year-old woman with Asperger syndrome presenting with challenging behavior. The fourth report is a small-scale service related research project, investigating how well current practice meets the standards of the local mood assessment pathway in a stroke service. The fifth report is an abstract of an oral presentation describing an extended assessment and cognitive-behavioural intervention for a 24-year-old gentleman in a medium secure forensic service.
