Abstract:
The thesis consists of two volumes. Volume 1: This volume consists of three chapters. The first chapter is a literature review examining whether there is a link between psychopathy and self-harm. The second chapter is a quantitative study investigating whether scores on the HCR-20 and FAM risk assessment tools predict frequency of self-harm in females within a secure psychiatric hospital. The third chapter comprises a public domain briefing document which provides a plain language summary of the literature review and empirical paper. Volume 2: This volume consists of five Forensic Clinical Practice Reports (FCPRs). The first details the case of a 63-year-old man with depression and paranoid schizophrenia, formulated from both cognitive and psychodynamic perspectives. The second is a service evaluation examining whether scores on the HCR-20 and HoNOS decrease over time for patients detained within a secure psychiatric hospital, and whether individuals’ scores on these measures reflect the level of security in which they reside. The third FCPR documents the case of a 34-year-old man experiencing offence-related anxiety, shame and depression. The fourth FCPR is a single-case experimental design investigating the effectiveness of a trauma-focussed cognitive-behavioural intervention for offence-related PTSD. The fifth FCPR is an abstract of an oral case presentation of a 14-year-old girl experiencing school anxiety. Pseudonyms have been used throughout to ensure anonymity.
