This thesis was submitted in partial fulfilment of a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and is composed to two volumes. Volume One contains the research component which includes a systematic literature review that investigates the role of fathers in the development of eating disorders, and an empirical study which explores the influence of Anorexia Nervosa upon family functioning. The clinical component of the thesis is presented in Volume Two in the form of five clinical practice reports. The first clinical practice report describes the case of a 78 year old woman suffering from agoraphobia and panic attacks that was formulated from Psychodynamic and Cognitive-behavioural approaches. The second report outlines a service evaluation that explored staff’s adherence to new policies within a dementia service. The third report describes a case study of a course of Person-centred Therapy with a 31 year old woman suffering from social anxiety and low mood. The fourth report describes an AB single case experimental design of Schema Therapy with a 17 year old girl diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa. The fifth report outlines a case study of Psychodynamic assessment and indirect intervention of a 56 year old man diagnosed with a mild learning disability and Bipolar Affective Disorder.
