Abstract:
This thesis is presented in two volumes; the research component (Volume One) and the clinical component (Volume Two). Volume One presents three research papers focusing on understanding interventions and change processes for people with severe and enduring mental health problems. The first paper is a meta-analysis evaluating the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for people with severe and enduring mental health problems. The second is an empirical study examining the role of shame and psychological flexibility in the relationship between mental health and substance use in people with severe and enduring mental health problems. The third is a report written to disseminate the research findings to the research participants and health care professionals. Volume Two consists of five clinical practice reports (CPRs); CPR 1 formulates a lady presenting obsessive-compulsive disorder, CPR 2 is a service evaluation, CPR 3 presents a single case experiment evaluating a cognitive-behavioural intervention for a man diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder, CPR 4 presents a case study of a compassion-focused intervention, and the abstract of CPR five, an oral case presentation, presents a case study of a man presenting with psychosis.
