Volume I comprises three chapters. The first chapter is a systematic literature review which synthesises and evaluates research exploring the experiences of and impact on family members where a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the family is undergoing an Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI). The second chapter is a qualitative empirical paper investigating sibling and parental experiences of living with a child with ASD. The third chapter is a public domain briefing document, providing an accessible summary of the literature review and empirical paper. These reports have been written in accordance with the guidelines for submission to the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders (Appendix A). Volume II comprises five Clinical Practice Reports (CPRs). The first report details the case of a ten year old boy who presented with symptoms of anxiety and a fear of being sick. The paper presents this case formulated from a cognitive-behavioural (CBT) and a psychodynamic perspective. The second report presents a small-scale service-related research project, exploring the expectations and experiences of mentoring from the perspective of facilitators who deliver a parenting group. The third report details a case-study of a 35 year old woman with symptoms of depression, formulation from a CBT approach. The fourth report is a single-case experimental design evaluating the effectiveness of a behavioural formulation and intervention for challenging behaviour for a 7 year old girl with a learning disability. The fifth report presents the abstract of an orally presented case study about the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for a 29 year old lady in recovery from an acute episode of psychosis following the birth of her child.
