Both Volumes I and II of this thesis were submitted in partial fulfillment of the Clinical Psychology Doctorate at the University of Birmingham. Volume I is the research component and comprises of a literature review and an empirical study. Volume II is the clinical component and comprises of five clinical practice reports. Volume I: Research Component Definitions of resilience remain unclear, and there has been minimal research in the area of resilience to psychotic symptoms, such as paranoia. A selective literature review and research study were conducted to address these issues. The review aimed to i) provide a brief overview of the development of two influential areas of resilience research, and ii) to then contribute to this field by adapting a recently proposed framework for investigating resilience, the Bi-Dimensional Framework. The empirical paper aimed to use the Bi-dimensional Framework to investigate whether low levels of shame, or a potential resistance to shame, might confer resilience against the development of paranoia in the face of life stress. Volume II: Clinical Component Five reports describe various assessments, formulations and interventions that were completed from cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, cognitive-analytic and neuropsychological perspectives. A service evaluation using quantitative data is also included.
