The thesis consists of two volumes which illustrate research (Volume I) and clinical work (Volume II). Volume 1: The first chapter is a review of the literature studying the relationship between maternal-foetal attachment and postnatal infant outcomes. The second chapter is a qualitative study exploring first-time parents' experiences of becoming a parent and the relationship with their baby. The final chapter is a public domain briefing document, providing an accessible summary of the literature review and empirical paper. Volume II: This volume contains four clinical practice reports (CPRs) and the abstract of a fifth which was presented orally. CPR 1 details the case of a 30-year-old woman presenting with generalised anxiety formulated from cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic perspectives. CPR2 is a service evaluation of multi-disciplinary team members' referrals to psychological services in a community mental health team. CPR3 presents a single-case experimental design that assessed the effectiveness of supporting a 19-year-old male with a learning disability with anxiety and the removal of his arm splints. CPR4 outlines an example of using psychological consultation on an inpatient ward for older adults. The final report is the abstract of an oral presentation of a case study of an 11-year-old boy presenting with anger.
