Volume I is divided into two papers. The first is a literature review that explored the emotional experience of professionals who work with victims of domestic violence. Twelve papers are evaluated and the evidence of negative and positive effects is presented. The second is a qualitative study with young people, their mothers and their grandmothers which explored resilience after domestic violence. Data was analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. Four themes regarding the memories of domestic violence, newfound stability, acceptance and strength and continued and re-scripted attachments were found. Volume II consists of five reports. The first describes the assessment of a 13-year-old boy with low self-esteem. His needs and strengths are formulated from two approaches: cognitive-behavioural and systemic. The next discusses a behavioural intervention and single case experimental design for a 15-year-old male presenting with challenging behaviours. The third paper outlines a Person Centred Care training program for staff working with older adults. The fourth is a case study of two siblings in local authority care. To consider care-plans, a formulation is informed by the complex trauma literature. The final report was an oral presentation of an admission assessment of a young woman in a high secure hospital.
