This thesis consists of two volumes that are submitted by Jane Waite as part of the Clinical Psychology Doctorate, University of Birmingham. The first volume includes two papers prepared for publication in Research in Developmental Disabilities and the Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities respectively. The first paper is a literature review integrating research on well-being in parents of individuals with intellectual disabilities and research on correlates of challenging behaviour. The second paper is an empirical study investigating parental perceptions of self-injury, aggression and destruction of property, and associations with child characteristics. In addition, a public domain briefing document is included in Volume I that summarises these papers in an accessible format. Volume II of this thesis consists of four clinical practice reports and an abstract for an oral presentation presented in place of a written report. The first report describes the assessment of a fifty year old woman with depression and a mild intellectual disability. Formulations are presented from a cognitive-behavioural and systemic perspective. The second report describes a service evaluation that was conducted to gather information about service users’ experience of an intellectual disability service. This report presents recommendations for how the service can be developed to support clients with profound intellectual disabilities. The third report describes the assessment, formulation and intervention of generalised anxiety disorder in a thirty-five year old woman. A functional analysis of a twelve year old girl with repetitive screaming is presented in report four. Finally, the abstract for report five describes a service evaluation of health professionals’ knowledge of older family carers' needs, and the influence of this knowledge on their practice.
