Volume One consists of three chapters. The first chapter is a systematic literature review of research on social activity and community integration following traumatic brain injury. The second chapter is a qualitative empirical paper looking at the experiences of friendships of those persons with brain injuries, both pre-and post-injury. The final chapter is a public domain document. This is a summary that has been written with the purpose of sharing the findings of the empirical paper with the services involved in the recruitment of participants. Volume Two comprises of five Clinical Practice Reports (CPRs). The first report details the case of a 39 year-old-woman with a mild learning disability with a diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), formulated using cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic approaches. The second report is an evaluation of a new Single Point of Access (SPA) referral pathway for a community learning disability service. The third report presents the case of a 51-year-old man who received a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) intervention for a diagnosis of health anxiety and co-morbid panic disorder and depression, in a community mental health team. The fourth report is an abstract of an oral presentation of a single-case experimental design of a Trauma-Focussed CBT intervention for PTSD with a 12-year old boy. The fifth and final report is a neuropsychological assessment of a 39 year old woman with multiple sclerosis and anxiety.
